'Bout Time

Remember when Madonna's Desperately Seeking Susan character kept her stuff in a locker in Port Authority?

That was a long time ago. There haven't been lockers in Port Authority—or any public place in Manhattan—for years. Even before 2001.

A few weeks ago, Shannon asked me where he could store his bags. His flight out of JFK was in late afternoon and he didn't want to go into the city, come home to get his luggage, then go back to the city and on to JFK.

"Can't be done," I said. Then, wait... maybe there's somewhere. But I know there's nowhere. But maybe...

A bit of googling turned up a private facility to store bags. And both its locations are near airport buses and the Airtrain. What a great service, one that's long been missing from NYC tourism.
