Bloomberg has gas to get to subway
From the NY Post:
Mayor Bloomberg kept his word about taking mass transit to work today as thousands across the area returned and work and school for the first time since Sandy devastated the New York area.
He was spotted riding the 5 train to City Hall [yesterday] morning.
Bloomberg left his East 79th Street town house just before 7 a.m. and was driven in a black Chevy Suburban to the express 5 train stop at 59th St.
He walked briskly through the station and arrived at the train just as it was entering the station and boarded with a half dozen security guards and City Hall photographer Spencer Tucker.
He read the front page of the Financial Times and was silent during the commute with his head down.
In a black jacket and black suit he blended in with commuters on the loosely-packed train.
When a Post reporter tried to ask the mayor how his commute was going a security guard asked her to step back.
He arrived at City Hall at 7:20 a.m.
The Village Voice saw the ridiculousness in the display.
