Yay or nay: Red Hook Ikea?

Curbed: Red Hook Ikea Plan: Ja, Baby, Ja!

Um, yeah, I'm a bit behind on this, but I have mixed feelings. Yeah, it's great that an Ikea's opening in the five boroughs, not too far from my current place. And it's nice there's both boat and bus shuttle service there, but I don't know if my life will improve all that much.

I imagine it would take about the same time to get there as it does now to Elizabeth, NJ on the free shuttle from Port Authority Bus Terminal. Plus, NJ has one advantage that Brooklyn can never match - 3% sales tax.

We shall see.

In no-Red Hook Ikea news:
Ikea gives commuters pillows in massive promotion, no reports of hot Swedish lesbian pillowfights on trains however.
