Our COL is ridiculous here, but trust me when I say that the people on that ferry weren't traveling to jobs at Mcdonald's. My friend takes that route (thank god, not that boat). He trades for a boutique hedge fund. He makes well over $400,000 a year at 34 and has been for awhile.

Besides that, from that area of NJ to downtown Manhattan by car, you're looking at 1:30 with NO traffic. Rush hour? See you tomorrow, AND once you are there parking will cost $500 a month. In between there are TWO tolls over $10 each and that's before gas. If I was making bank and wanted my kids to grow up with a nice sized yard and big house, I'd be on that ferry every morning too.

Thankfully no one died like in 2003 on the free SI Ferry.

Im really glad for all the bloody noses and busted lips. If a person has to get injured just going in to work it should be something my grandmother would have put a little sugar on.

By the way, is there a doctor in the house? Does sugar on a bloody lip do any good?

Don't know why but I had a dream about this last night. I was watching the news and Chris Christie died on the ferry... No idea where that came from.. It was very vivid too. Like I was really watching TV.
