Weekdays in Manhattan are hectic. Everyone is in a rush to get somewhere – to work, to an appointment, a lunch… maybe even to get laid. While on my way to the office this morning, I started thinking about why people walk so fast here and why everyone is always so pushy on the subway and on the streets. If I cross this street diagonally instead of waiting to get to the crosswalk, I might save 20 seconds! If I do that, I could save a minute! What are we really gaining in our mad rush to get from place to place?
