Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

I'm in Bike with You

Want to save eighty-something dollars you spend on transportation each month? (I can't remember the monthly price of the subway these days, and I use TransitCheck anyway, so who cares.) Ride your bike. And if each time you hop on your bike to head to work you're terrified you'll find yourself riding the wrong way down a one way street and will get dirty looks, flipped off, and even beat up by other bikers, or will break some unknown-to-everyone-except-bike-messengers rule, than check this out! It's kinda like HopStop for those of use who aren't lazy assholes. Plug in your beginning and ending point, and RidetheCity will map it out for you. Cool! It will tell you what streets are going the right way for you, and even how long it will take. (Although it says for me to get from home to office it should be 35 minutes. It takes me at least 50.)
