Commutation #23 : Traversing Central Park & Underground to the Flatirons (in the Snow)

We've lived in 6 different apartments in Manhattan, and I've worked (for an extensive period of time) in 8 different locations. That makes for a lot of permutations of commutes, each route with it's own permutations. I typically bike or walk, though in winter months like now I'm wimpy and resort to the subway. Right now we live on 74th street on the west side and I work on 28th and Park. Because I detest the hassle and hustle of switching at Columbus Circle, I usually walk through Central Park to 57th street to catch the R or W.

Yesterday snow was a part of my commutation. I took these pictures and made this video on the way. The soundtrack is a jam session with me and these guys Pete and Les a long time ago. Ok, so I snuck in some footage from the Natural History Museum. You get the idea.
