I picked up the little red wounded rental at the Brooklyn Navy Yard depot ($185 fee), arranged for a couple of AAA guys to properly change the flat tire outside the gates, made my way over the Brooklyn Bridge and up FDR Drive and through midtown, dropped off a Fed Ex package on 11th Ave. and 42nd, drove through the Lincoln Tunnel and got the tire repaired at Terry Tires of North Bergen ($15 — special deal with Dollar).

The AAA-allied fix-it guys attending to business outside the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
