My guess is that it will take 1/2 an hour to get there by bike. When I lived in NYC I commuted by bike over the brooklyn bridge from Greenwich village to Fort Greene for school. Then I commuted from our apartment in Cobble Hill to my studio in Long Island City. Those were about 25 minute rides too. Besides the obvious blood pumping goodness of a bike ride, I always had at least one or two interesting thoughts.
I am going to write about the thoughts generated during my commute. If not, I will make something else up.
