Up the FDR on our way to LGA this morning.
My new BFF taxi driver in Manhattan this morning was making good time on the FDR. He chose that route to La Guardia 'cause one of the lanes in the Mid-Town Tunnel was closed, and traffic was already (0730, EDT) backing up. I also learned this fact: my driver leases his car on a daily basis, for which he pays the owner $150. Driver collects $50.00 from me (including the toll on the TriBoro and a 20% tip) which means he has to log at least three good fares like airport runs just to stay even. Tough way to make a living, though the view through the windshield belies the fact.
