Central Park chaos
Anyone who attempted shopping in Central Park today is probably not in the Christmas spirit right now (if they’ve been able to make it home yet). Here are a few reported travel times:
Total Wine to Subway (i.e., across the street): one hour
Front of Spotsy mall to Total Wine: one hour
Regal Cinema to Total Wine (I’d want booze, too, after all this): 30 minutes
Wegman’s to Pet Smart: hour and a half
I’m sure plenty of you have horror stories to tell about traffic today. I am told Cowan Boulevard heading toward Central Park was backed up all the way to Route 1.
