While gas prices were peaking at an average $4.28 per gallon in 2011, offMetro writers and readers were busy taking to the rails, bus lanes, and bike paths around NYC in pursuit of affordable, eco-conscious adventure. We left familiar streets, with their steaming manholes, occupy protesters, and taunting nut carts and set out to see how much we could see without a car.

Here are oM’s most popular posts of 2011.
