Taking the train to work

Last Tuesday, Aaron Naparstek and I took in the Yankee game and watched the impressive Cliff Lee throw a 7-inning shut out and drop his ERA to 0.81, in what some analysts were calling “the pitching matchup of the season” (5-0 Lee vs. 6-0 Wang).

It turns out, had we been a little earlier, we would have caught Cliff riding the 4 train up to the stadium. Pretty cool that major leaguers (not to mention the upcoming game’s starters) take the subway to work.

Now, if only the city would encourage transit use to stadiums rather than subsidizing more car parking

Update: Aaron blogged about this today on Streetsblog.
