As you know if you've come by lately, now
that the weather is nicer I've been interrupting
my subway commute with a walk across the
Brooklyn Bridge on my way to work—and home.
• A monthly subway pass = $89.
• The iPod on which I upload free NPR
podcasts of "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me"
to listen to as I hike the mile+ over
the bridge = $150.
• This incredible view of the Empire
State Bldg. framed by a stanchion of the
Manhattan Bridge = priceless.
