No Buses, Trains or Aggravation Today!

If you are familiar with my commuting blog you have read about my complaining about commuting delays on public transportation.  Today I had the unique experience of driving to work.  I presented a paper to the librarians at Stony Brook University in eastern Long Island.  I must say that it was a very beautiful campus.

I drove to Merrick in Nassau County where I met Selenay Aytac, my research collaborator.  From there we drove in her car the rest of the way.  There were a few places with heavy traffic, but no major tieups.

Driving to work does have its problems as often traffic is a problem.  I would have to pay a fortune in tolls if I drove to NJIT in Newark.  Parking is usually a problem as well since spots are limited.  Most universities charge employees to park.

You just can't win.
