Yay for a new-to-me stop on the F train: Smith-9th street, with two very long escalators plus stairs. And also this fine view. Then the G train across Brooklyn, & eventually the L train home.
Pro tip: the G is not the J. Turns out the G doesn't go into Manhattan at all, & it's the J that you can catch at Delancey St. Who knew? I'm certainly not one of the dead who know Brooklyn.
