Norwalk resident drives into NYC to rescue stranded commuter
The extremely limited train service in southwestern Connecticut forced some to drive into New York City to pick up stranded friends and family. For the first time, Norwalk resident Mary Gardner got behind the wheel for a trip into NYC to rescue her husband, who had no other way of getting home from Manhattan Friday. She has detailed directions to help keep her going the right way but some things, such as busy intersections and street lights that weren't lit, were out of her control.And although there wasn't much traffic heading into Manhattan, the highways heading out were congested.
