As an Irvington resident, I'm sorry to hear that. I had to look up that address and since it's on the eastern end of WP, it would be even further of a commute.

Just as an FYI to everyone, the traffic on 287 is bad, but as long as you aren't going across the bridge, it looks a lot worse than it is. I don't commute to WP but I have driven to and from WP (downtown area) during rush hour many times and it takes me about 20 minutes, which is more than the 7-10 minutes it normally takes me but not too bad.

The biggest drag on time is actually the traffic in WP, not on 287.
