A Brave New World, or “v” is for Victory

Despite my recent altercations with the MTA (subway system), I felt familiarized enough with the train lines to embark in yet another new adventure, and by that, I mean venturing into the boroughs.

The whole thing didn’t really spring from a sense of adventure, but instead, from the need to print out our Xmas cards. As it turns out, the only big chain that had decent-looking, if not cheesy, photo Xmas cards was Target, which believe it or not, has not yet taken over Manhattan. So for the nearest Target, I had to go to QUEENS. Yes, you heard it right: QUEENS.

The trek was uneventful and the actual train ride was a straight shot. The V train dropped me off literally across the street from the local Target.
