  1. That looks like it's by the Western Beef. It doesn't help that Eagle Avenue is right there - that left from Eagle to Woodfield isn't easy to make with all the traffic coming up the other side. When it gets congested, people like to use the suicide lane in front of the Western Beef to get around traffic. I don't doubt that the SUV tried something like that, but there are no other photos to go by other than firstonscene's only photo.

    Off-topic Random Thoughts Thread

    I remember getting the Math A Regents, Global I, and the Living Environment (everyone called it "Bio" for short). The scores for the old Math A/B Regents exams were so catastrophically bad (my score was in the low 70s) the state decided to split it back up (Trig-Algebra) after my class took it.

    They give you the ELA in the 9th grade now? Good God.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Is there bustitution going on today for the LIRR? I saw an MTA Bus MCI (3050) across from the West Hempstead LIRR station. I saw another MCI (too far to see the number) at Valley Stream, too.
  5. Was that an NG, 3G, or an XD40?
  6. Any horror stories about A/C not working or it being "too cold" inside the bus so passengers open the windows?

    LIRR And MNRR Random Thoughts Thread

    30 minutes from Exit 2 to the outerbridge, and I was by exit 5. I could have spent that time getting over the GWB and then making up for it on the Turnpike.
  8. Those look nice and if you look at the back, the old font number still shows.

    It was, but I was stupid enough to think "30 minutes in traffic is better than spending more time moving." Google's other suggestion was take the GWB.

    LIRR And MNRR Random Thoughts Thread

    You should have been there the weekend the NJ-bound Goethals was closed and they were preparing to open the second span. It was half an hour to get onto the Outerbridge. Google told me to cut through Bricktown Mall and then use the ramp immediately before the bridge. It would have worked if half of Staten Island wasn't trying to do the same thing. I do wonder what would have happened if all those canceled SI highways had been built.

    Am I still wrong in believing that Carrier HVAC in anything that moves is a waste?

    Worst MTA/NICE/BEE-LINE Bus Route?

    The N16 in Nassau is awful any time after 10:00 AM. The fact that the N35 used to beat it to Hempstead when the 16's route was almost 3 miles shorter every time I took it says a lot. The Mineola-Jamaica routes like the N22 and 24 are just as bad.

    SI-bound. I was headed for Brooklyn so I didn't get to see the number.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    I saw an SBS-wrapped NG on the lower deck of the Verrazano earlier this morning in the right lane with the signs off, with an NYPD truck blocking lanes to create a safety zone - it must have been a breakdown because only the B/O was onboard.

    This attitude is why he keeps giving you smart-arse answers. I'm sure he deals with plenty of your type already on a daily basis.
