We welcome summer with a good old fashioned miserable ride on the BQE. Center lane construction on the Staten Island Expressway. More of same on the Gowanus. Crawling through downtown Brooklyn. Fender benders abound. The overhead warning sign reads "Disabled Vehicle Approaching Kosciuszko Bridge." Grimace. But when you see the poor car service guy in his Town Car, trunk up, waving a red plastic shopping bag like a balloon, all you can think is, There but for the grace of God....

A much better summer ride:
