The Hamlet Chronicles

Add one more item to the list of Hamlet Goore’s foibles — he must have a bad sense of direction. When the Attorney General’s live-in boyfriend found himself in need of a Motor Vehicles Commission office to straighten out a mess with his drivers license and car registration, he travelled miles out of his way to go to Elizabeth. The MVC has offices in North Bergen, where Goore lives, and also in Irvington, where he works. If Goore, for some reason, didn’t want to use the local office in North Bergen (located 1.37 miles from his home), the MVC has seven offices closer to his home than Elizabeth: Jersey City, Lodi, Englewood, Wallington, Newark, East Orange, Bayonne. If Goore was going during his lunch hour (he works for the Township of Irvington), and didn’t (for some reason) want to use the local office located 1/2 mile from his office, he could have made it to East Orange, Newark or Sprinfield faster than Elizabeth.
