So you thought your commute couldn’t get any worse… Let’s throw in a bit of El Chapo. Yes, you read that right. The biggest drug kingpin of all time may be taking the same route as you. However, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman will not be hanging out in DUMBO.
He will travel from Lower Manhattan to Brooklyn and will be taking the “Brooklyn Bridge”. Starting in November, they will shut down the bridge and he will be swept across by a very heavily armored motorcade to the Brooklyn courthouse. Wait, it gets better, this will happen twice a day during the AM and PM rush. You can’t make this up.
See this is why I moved to Jersey.
