Sometimes I wish I could travel at timelapse speed

I am probably one of the few people who like the commute when taking a train. The reason I like taking the train is that it gives me time to read. I normally take the train once or twice a week, the train ride itself is only about 35 minutes or so from Princeton to Newark. In Newark I transfer to the path and take that to the World Trade Center station.

So yesterday I was sitting on the train on the way home and decided to take a timelapse video between two station. You can see that video below

As you can see that took about 14 seconds for a 4 minute or so train ride duration. That means if I was to travel at timelapse speed, it would be about 17 times faster. With a timelapse travel speed my commute would be about 2 minutes..... Who wants that, that would mean it would take me a year to finish a book if I only read on the train, However sometimes it is handy, this is especially true when the NJ Transit or Amtrak trains are running late........ which is every day!!

Here are two Google Map images of the two stations to give you an idea where this is all located

If you prefer to see this in Google Maps the go here: Google Maps

I am a big fan of timelapse videos, it is always interesting when you see people in timelapse videos, it;s like watching a bunch of rats or ants

If you like timelapse videos, check out timelapse on reddit if you don't already know about that subreddit:
