Having spent a bunch of time in both cities, I'm ready to tell you what you should think of them. First item: underground transportation.
OK, New Yorkers, the tube is:
* with more frequent trains
* and nice signs that tell you when the next train is coming, so you don't wait on the platform for 40 minutes only to find out the line is closed.
Finally, when there is a delay, the posh lady who does the London Underground announcements says, "We apologize for any inconvenience."
But today, on the subway, the announcer said, "We're delayed waiting for the tracks to clear. Please be patient."
So, instead of apologizing for the delay, the guy gave me an order as to how to regard it!
And what if I began to fidget? Would I be thrown off?
