NY subway is on strike!!

I can't believe all subway lines and busses are now on strike in Manhattan!!!


Here in Osaka, we have the city subway system, JR lines and several private lines running in Osaka city. So if the subway system went on strike, we could use other lines. Moreover, we haven't had any major transportation strikes for many years.

On the other hand, I think there are almost no alternative transportation in Manhattan. So it must be very hard for New Yorkers to get to their offices and schools!!


It reminds me of my stay in Vancouver in spring of 2001. I spent 4 weeks there, stayed at homestay home and went to English school on weekdays.

At that time, actually the whole of my stay, the city's transportation system were on strike!! I think it lasted for months, maybe about half a year that year. Workers were share-riding every morning. Many parents picked up their children after school(not only small kids but also highschool students!), or some children had to wait for their parent finishing work at the company. It was totally unexpected event. My life was so inconvinient!! Thanked for the small luck, our school were able to hire the school bus, so I could get to school anyway. But there was only one in the morning and another in the evening, which meant I had to get on the same bus every morning and every evening. My leaving times at home and at school were completely fixed!!

When I wanted to meet my friend after school, I had to get a taxi to my homestay home after the meeting. When I wanted to go to downtown on weekends, I had to get a taxi as well! Consequently, I was a really super serious excellent student!!! Also, I had a really good relationship with the homestay family because I spent plenty of time at home. umm.. it was good, now I can say that! Anyway, that's why, I might be able to imagine how things are going in NY right now, or it's beyond my imagination?? Maybe!

Good luck, everybody out there!!!!
I hope it meets a good settlement soon!!
