39. Dyker is transit paradise compared with...

most parts of Queens. Double fare is a practical necessity and the train/bus ride is a nightmare. At least in Dyker you can walk to the golf course. Plenty of great bars, as well. However... I was on the F train last week and it traveled at about 5 MPH and made a stop every two blocks. Torture! If I had to do that every day I'd buy a one-way ticket to a golf course community in North Carolina.

The subway system was designed when Brooklyn and Queens were mostly farming villages. I lived on the Brooklyn/Queens border in the 50s and there was a farm at the end of my block and a dairy farm next to my school.

I'd love to move to Hoboken. Quick trip on PATH, but it's getting just as crowded and expensive as Manhattan.
