Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “New Jersey man makes sweet ride to Brooklyn, and a peerless view of Lady Liberty, his daily commute”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Jersey City businessman skips the mundane travel routine of bus-to-ferry-to-subway-to-car to get to his Brooklyn destination — and simply dons T-shirt, shorts, sunglasses and life jacket to push off a Jet Ski from the marina near his Port Liberte home.

“If there are no waves, I just go full throttle,” he added of a ride that slices mounds of surface white water as Lady Liberty looks down on him. “I just let it rip at 40 mph... as I cross New York harbor and aim for Brooklyn."

For Pike, it’s a sweet deal to trade the drudgery of a daily commute for an incomparable breeze of a ride.

“My commute used to be 90 minutes each way, now its 15 minutes dock to dock,” he boasted. “It’s ridiculous (how) the traffic can be so bad.”

Pike’s normal morning odyssey would involve a shuttle bus and ride on the PATH train, followed by a descent into the steamy subway before popping up in Red Hook. He’d finish it all off with a Uber ride, or long walk, to the open-air garage that houses his company, New York Trolley.
