Travels with Tonoose: Commuting in New York, New Jersey, and other trips
By Anthony Buccino
Having some fun with travel writing, Anthony Buccino taps into his years as a commuter in metro New York and New Jersey, some nearby vacations and even a few celebrities met traveling for business.
While working for a national trade association, Buccino traveled to many large U.S. for business, remembering mostly airports, hotels and convention centers, but we're trying to entice him to share more.
For 11 years, Buccino rode public transportation including NJ Transit buses, Newark City Subway, Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, Port Authority Trans Hudson's PATH trains, the occasional NYC subway and DeCamp buses. For five years, he wrote about commuting and transit in metro New York-New Jersey for NJ.com. His transit writing earned the New Jersey Society of Professional Journalists Excellence in Journalism award.
So, if you like, Tweet and share these stories, we'll surely find more for you to enjoy.
Here, a few from his old and new travelogues.
