    I didn't know you lived in NYC! Where are you?

    I live on 75th and Columbus, so it's perfect for me... right in between Columbia (where I work) and the NYAC (where I train). When apartment hunting, I kept both those factors in mind. Sometimes I really wish I had a nice big house, but then I realize how cool NYC is and I'm not ready to move yet.

    19 miles and about 25 minutes
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Almost 40 miles...I can count on usually about an hour or so commute. I've gotten use to it so it now big deal. At some point I heard that its healthy to have at least a 20 minute commute home so you can clear your head after work.

    Mine is 40 miles each way.

    About 45 minutes on a good day. Up to an hour and a half if someone is changing a tire on the side of the road and everyone has to slow down to look.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to imply I live in NYC. I live in central Denver. But I guess to New Yorkers, "the city" means THE city. If I had such a choice (could afford to live in NYC) I would probably do just what you're doing, including finding a good workout facility close by.

    About 1.5 hours for me. Its only about 15-20 miles but I have to drive to the ferry (45 minutes by the time I park and get through traffic), the ferry is about 30 minutes, and then a 10 minute walk in the city.

    Sometimes I work in NJ and its 25 miles but it takes about 40 minutes to get there.

    Do you really have to commute to your job as professional messageboard poster?
