I had a girlfriend who lived in Hoboken and she would always complain how I never visited her and that's the reason why?!?!

Her excuse for not visiting me when I lived on the UES of Manhattan was there was never any parking 🤣

Why would anyone drive from Hoboken to the UES (and vice versa)?

When we'd visit one another we'd stay over the weekend and go somewhere during the weekend.

We didn't like using mass transit on the weekends since it was an erratic and not as consistent schedule.

And the amount of time it takes to find parking wasn't erratic? I guess if you have the money it's better but I'd save the toll, gas, parking payments for the slightly longer weekend headways.

Finding parking wasn't an issue since she'd just pop into the parking garage underneath my apartment.

She just hated driving to visit though I never thought it was that bad of a drive?! Holland Tunnel then straight up the East Side Hwy?!

Because it takes 1.5 hours by path an subway to get from one place to the other.

Huh? Hoboken to 33rd is 15 minutes. Then you take the Q and even up to 96th street that's only another 15 minutes.

Even if you're taking the L and the 6 that's 50 minutes tops
