When we got to North Station in Boston, there were fewer people on the inbound platform for either the green line or the orange line than I have EVER seen there. This was odd. It made me uneasy.
Then I got on an E Train for the ride to Prudential, it's a longer walk to the office than either the Back Bay Orange Line stop or the Copley stop on the Green Line, but it's ALL indoors, and I could use the exercise. The train was packed, this was more like it.
I hate crowds normally, but they have apparently become such a part of my daily experience on public transit that I now find myself looking for them when they are not around.
I guess that says something about life in the city. Amazing how alone you can feel in a crowd, and how singled out you can feel when alone...
