- David Pike lives in Jersey City, New Jersey, but works in Brooklyn, New York
- He previously traveled by public transport to go to work, which took him through Manhattan and lasted an hour and a half
- He now traverses the port of New York on a jet ski that he bought on eBay
- This has reduced his commuting to just 15 minutes while driving across the water south of Manhattan
- He plans to keep his commute to the same until November by wearing a wetsuit
A man has reduced his commute to work from an hour and a half traveling to just 15 minutes after he started driving a jet ski to work in New York City.
David Pike currently lives in Jersey City, New Jersey, but works for his work in Brooklyn, New York, which made his journey last an hour and a half because he first had to travel through Manhattan.
This encouraged David to become innovative in finding another way to travel to work, and he now makes the journey in a jet ski across the port of New York.
En route: David Pike lives in Jersey City, New Jersey, but works in Brooklyn, New York
Creative: he has considerably reduced his commuting distance by buying a jet ski on eBay to take him to New York harbor
Time for a change: he previously traveled through Manhattan to get to work, making his commute an hour and a half
& # 39; My company, New York Trolley, is in Brooklyn and it would take me 90 minutes every day, & # 39; David said Good morning America.
& # 39; I should take the bus to the metro to the PATH to another bus and all the while I just look through the harbor as: "I just have to go there, how can I do that?"
Although Jersey City is fairly close to Brooklyn, traveling by public transport takes a detour with different trains and buses. Even driving a car can take a while, and most people who live and work in New York don't have cars due to congestion and the price of parking.
But David found that he could reduce his commute to one-sixth of the time by going straight through New York Harbor and bypassing Manhattan all together.
So he decided to buy a jet ski on eBay to help him achieve a shorter commute.
& # 39; Now it takes me 15 minutes; I just cut right through the harbor, & he explained on the morning show.
David parks his jet ski at the kayak dock in the Brooklyn cruise terminal before heading to work in the area.
Happy camper: David has set up a place to park his jet ski and everything, which has made his morning to work a lot easier
Views: Although he drove to work alone, David said he did not feel lonely on the water. Pictured: David drives past the Statue of Liberty during commuting
Full of plans: he plans to keep his commute to the same until November by wearing a wetsuit
The outside-the-box thinker was asked what it was like to be alone on the water, but he seems to enjoy commuting
& # 39; The port is really a hive of activity, & # 39; he said and added: & # 39; There are cruise ships, paddle boards, tourist boats, and seagulls, so I feel like I'm in good company. & # 39;
In addition to seeing the other people on the water, David has a beautiful view of the Statue of Liberty every day.
He shared a video of himself roaming past the statue during his commute.
The new way of traveling has been so successful that David recently upgraded his ride to a newer version.
David said he plans to keep his commute to work the same until November using a wetsuit.
& # 39; That's when I go swimming, & # 39; he joked when asked about his plans for the colder months. & # 39; I actually have a wet suit, so I plan to go through November. & # 39;
