My sister lives in NYC (Staten Island) and I live in Newmarket (UK). I visited her one summer. We were to meet at the ferry terminal in lower Manhattan, after she finished work. She wasn’t sure the exact time so we had a 40 min. window for the rendezvous. As with the tube in London, on the NYC subway there are quite a few ways to get to a destination. I took an indirect route (as in got lost), and waited for a train I hadn’t planned on. I was still pretty far from lower Manhattan. I stood on the platform, the doors opened and my sister was standing right in front of me.
