When we arrived in NYC we took a cab from JFK. The guy asked if I could give him directions because he doesn’t really go around Brooklyn. Yup, cutting out one of the five major boroughs doesn’t seem like something you can really afford to do as a cabbie. We made it to our destination all right but either due to his driving and or  traffic, I think the fare ended up being $5-10 more than I usually pay getting to or from JFK.

For those curious, Union and 7th ave in Brooklyn is around where my apartment was around five years ago. Man, already five years???
