Billie Cohen, who’s subjecting herself to a steady diet of planes, trains and automobiles for a daily column on commuting in the tri-state area, tested out Metro-North on its stellar Hudson Line.
What did she find? Valet parking, armrests that are prone to tear clothing, nice views and relaxed commuters.
“I think people on the Hudson line are a lot happier because of the view,” said Michael Scott, who grew up along this river-hugging Metro-North route and now commutes from Scarborough. “People pay for vacations with that kind of view. On the Harlem or New Haven lines, they’re probably a lot grumpier.”
Hey, Michael Scott, shouldn’t you be commuting to Scranton or something?
