I take this about once a week. When was the last time you rode a “Limo”?

    Pencil, why is Penn Station in New York? Is there a New York Station in Philly?

    How do you go to NYC?

    Hmm, my guess would be it’s Penn Station because the Pennsylvania RR Company laid the tracks first, maybe? Not sure. Philly has (well, had for many years) Reading Terminal, I suppose because the Reading RR started it. (I’m going by my memory of the Monopoly board) That terminal named got changed to ‘Market East’ after I got out of college, and a year or 2 ago it got changed again to ‘Jefferson Station’ – Jefferson Hospital is very close to it.

    To get to NYC I can either drive an hour to Hamilton, NJ and catch an NJ Transit train for an hour to Penn Station, or take a bus right from my town to Penn Station – about a 2.5 hour ride.

    William Penn, I should think.

        It was interesting reading about William Penn and his father Admiral William Penn. Samuel “The Diarist” Pepys was a neighbor. Old Sam from Wikipedia is said to have try to hit on Will’s mom and sister.

        The father brought back Charles II to England. The king owed the father money and gave the son some “swamp land” in America.

    Well the weather here’s been pretty swampy lately. Warm and high humidity.

    Limos are overrated. if you are sitting in the back of a Town Car, you are right over the rear axle and are taking the full impact of bumps and vibrations. In contrast, a front seat passenger is seated between the axles so that the magnitude of bumps/vibrations is halved.

    If you get a stretch with a rear-facing middle row, , that cuts the vibration, but you have disorientation issues.

    Thus, a key aspect of potential fully autonomous cars is being able to shift high value passengers to where the front row currently is.
