Absolutely. When Mrs. Main and/or I need to get to Court Street (not infrequently) from our Staten Island home, it's a SIM bus to the first Manhattan stop, then R to Court. Yes, the 4 is also close by, but for this use, the R is just better. Hard to say why.
But the tip UPTOWN on the R is really, seriously, majorly drag-ass. The long dwell at Canal St. especially sucks.
