How to save $4.50:
1. Approach token booth with friend or spouse.
2. Ask for two subway maps.
3. Recoil at attitude of token booth clerk.
4. Approach token booth on other side of tracks.
5. Repeat steps 1-3.
Why? Because it's a hell of a lot better to say, "And that's a real New York City subway map." Plus, you'll save yourself from having to answer why they've cropped it so that it appears that Mahattan ends at about 96th Street.If you can't make it to New York City, give me your address and write me a check for $4.50 (plus $2.00 shipping and handling) and I send you a subway map. It will be more than I'll make all month from this blog.
