During this visit it occured to me, your average New Yorker is oddly well suited for long term space travel- like a generation ship- and here's why:
1. They're used to living and traveling in tight spaces,
2. being around lots of different ppl who dont speak the same language,
3. Having to navigate incredibly dense & complex four dimensional transactions just to get.isht.done
4. They're inured, expect, and in best cases, amused by a certain degree of the strange and unusual
In going to and fro on the 4,5, L, & Ms, and getting a high degree of familiarity with the limits of GPS and accelerometers, a story idea hit me: Bat-21, but with the New York subway system. You know Bat-21, yeah? Danny Glover trying to find shot-down Gene Hackman in Vietnam, Hackman uses AFB golf courses as improvised code talk so the NVA cant overhear his plans?
Anyways, this isnt that, but it's what I did on and off today while either a bug or general tiredness took me off the iron worms and my sightseeing.
