I tend to go into NYC via Metro North for personal and business events. I travel in on a average 5-10 times a month.
How Long It Takes:
The overall commute can be about an hour and a half one way into Manhattan. Depends on what train I am able to get.
How I Use My Commuting Time Productively:
I usually brainstorm for upcoming blog posts, projects, or events I am working on. Either that or I am busy uploading photos to Instagram.
My One Commute Must Have:
Definitely my iPhone and my planner.
My Top Tip for a New Commuter:
I would recommend wearing comfy shoes. The transit can get a bit crowded from time to time and you might get caught standing or running to catch the train. You want to make sure you’re completely comfortable and able to take on whatever the day brings.
One Myth About Commuting That I’d Like to Dispel:
In my case, my myths have proven to be true as far as the NYC commute goes. It’s a sad but true story. I’ve learned to roll with the punches.
The funniest/strangest/worst/most memorable thing to ever happen during my commute:
My funniest commute story is one that took place with a good friend of mine. She had just stepped foot onto the train in some stylish new heels. As soon as she sat down the guy sitting across from her puked on the floor and she literally became frozen with fear. It took a lot of me talking to her to calm her down and actually get her to move from her frozen state.
