In short, getting back to New York was a long, painful, and cold ordeal.

My flight, the ticket for which my grandma got me, was non-stop. Granny Jan (my dad's mom) does much international globetrotting (as opposed to national globetrotting); when I visited New York the first time in July 2002, it was her doing (early graduation present.) She has accrued the crazy frequent flier miles, I was to be the benefactor. No hour-or-two layover in Pittsburgh or Philly, leave the ground in Phoenix and the next ground I touch is NYC. Problem was the flight didn't go to NYC. It went to Newark.

The Newark International Airport is considered to be just fine for getting into the big city, just as fine as JFK or LaGuardia, which I usually fly out of. I don't know why it's considered that. I think it's ass.

To make a long and painful tale merely brief and excruciating, my dad said it was easy to catch a train into the city, and I'm notoriously cheap, so I thought, sure, I'll forgo a cab, lug all my shit, save a few bucks, and rough it. It will be cold and there will be stairs, but for sure I will have that weary-traveller feeling that's so romantic and glamorous when you don't go from airport tram to bus to train to the uber-people-glut of Friday night Penn Station, everybody going out of the city, you trying to break into it with a ton of bag slung over your shoulder, to a subway car where one of a pair of diminutive Dominican girls says "That bag BEST not be on my foot!" to shoving your way through a turnstile to the frigid six block walk that only seems like ten miles because you started your day someplace where it was sixty-five degrees, warmer tommorrow.

Next time, a cab. Hell, two cabs. One for me and one for all the clothes I thought I'd need for some reason back in Phoenix which isn't paradise but in January might as well be.


I'm back.

Particularly useful article. Myself & my neighbor were preparing to do some research about that. We got a wonderful book on that matter from our local library and most books were not as descriptive as your information. I'm rather glad to see such information which I was searching for a long time.
