I have taken rides on a lot of busses around the city.
My mother started us very young; seemed like everywhere I was going MTA was the reliable way to go.
The 75 and 68 were probably the two most popular for me.
I came across a story on Michael Buscemi, brother of Steve, who has filmed a short movie about the ‘B61’. Click here for the Daily News review.
“When you’re waiting for a bus or train, you have the opportunity to meet someone,” said Buscemi, who lives in the nabe and regularly rides the B61.
“The whole dynamic is so interesting.”
Vincent is as exasperated by the B61 — one of the city’s slowest, most crowded buses — as real-life riders.
I only took the 61 once; I went down to Visitation to play in a basketball game.
The bus sucked so much, we walked over to Smith and 9th and took the train home.
