Map finds average time of New Yorkers’ daily commute

 

Do stories of your long commute that usually begin with the phrase “You’ll never believe what happened today on the subway…” dominate your conversations? Do you and your buddies discuss who has the hardest commute? What’s worse, taking the Staten Island Ferry to work every morning or having to switch from the N to the 7 to the G to get from Astoria to Greenpoint?

According to the Census New Yorkers take the prize for longest commute time.

WNYC released a map to help shed some light on just how long the commutes are.

The map, based on census data, is pretty much what you would expect. Residents of lower Manhattan have a fairly short commute compared to those who live in places like LIC and Bay Ridge.

Are you jealous of your Financial District friends that have a 10-15 minute commute, or would you never give up your Park Slope apartment despite having a 38 minute long commute?
