MONTVILLE – Gov. Chris Christie’s favorite thing about being the governor of the Garden State?
Easy, he says. It’s going to New York City.
Christie told an 8-year-old girl at a Montville town hall Wednesday who inquired about his favorite part of being governor that his ride into the Big Apple is, easily, the best part.
Why? Because normal traffic to the Lincoln Tunnel is closed when a governor drives through, of course.
“I love going to New York now, I used to hate it,” Christie joked.
The governor says driving through the tunnel into New York City without any other cars on the road is the best way to travel.
He recalled recently traveling there with First Lady Mary Pat, saying the couple still gets a kick out zipping through the Lincoln Tunnel.
“She looked at me and said, ‘This never gets old,’” said Christie, adding, “It might be the major reason she wants me to get re-elected.”
