To get to the nearest store to my house, it would take over 30 minutes walking distance (that's at a brisk mph walk). Public transportation-wise, I just looked it up, it would take over 5 hours! I would need to walk to a train station (says 11 minutes driving only). Then I would take the train north into NYC, get on a bus, transfer several miles south of my house, and ride north to the wrong end of the road... Then I'd need to walk down this one road to get to the deli. hehe. 6 minutes driving, 41 minutes walking, or nearly 6 hours public transportation.
