What could it be like?

For those of you (and there are many) not fortunate enough to visit Washington, DC and ride the Metro, here’s what you’re missing.
Granted, it doesn’t go everywhere like the NYC subway does.  And you have to pay based on how far you ride.  Otherwise, the Metro is beautiful.
Just look in this video at things like [...]

MTA: You Lose It, We Sell It

Posted on October 28th, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in This just in

We were reminded today by NYCtheBlog that the MTA regularly sells off stuff that they no longer want including your lost and found items.  Then again, I guess if you never claim your lost items, they really aren’t yours anymore but I digress.
You can buy everything from toll lane scrubbers (little Zamboni looking things), to [...]

The Kia Motors and NBA Tip Off Celebration Event in Union Square is this week.  They’re setting up a basketball court, have a DJ, yadda yadda.  There will be current and former players there too apparently.
It’s all coming up on October 28th.
A publicist for the event says, “To say the least, it-is-going-to-be-insane.”
Perhaps.
Kia paying [...]

This is gonna sound strange, but hear me out.  There is definitely a distinct smell in the subway that can only be found when the weather starts to get cold.  Right?
It’s a sort of musty, sour, grandma’s basement sort of a smell.  I’m not the only on that notices it, right?
Yeah, I know, there’s an [...]

Subway Sneezer Nearly Incites Riot

Posted on October 23rd, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in Crime

I was on my way to a second day of torture jury duty.  I made my connection to an express train and actually scored a seat.  Sweet.
It was a pretty crowded train, just as any train rolling through midtown during rush hour is. All of a sudden…
AAHHHhhhh CHOOOOOOOOO!!
Ahhhh CHHHooo
AAAAAAHHHHH choo.
(That’s a guy sneezing…FYI)
A few sneezes [...]

Jury Duty

Posted on October 22nd, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in Live Blogging On the Subway

Kill me now.
The only saving grace is the free WiFi available in the jury room. Otherwise, I would be contemplating homicide the entire day just to make things interesting.
An uneventful ride down town to the City Hall area.  It was just after 8am when I got down here, and it seemed like the city was [...]

SUBWAYblogger is getting reports that an officer was shot in the subway in Queens.
Sources tell us that at least one cop was shot.  A second officer was also injured and taken to the hospital.  Not sure if that officer was shot as well.
The suspect(s) are in custody and are also reported to have been shot.
This [...]

I’m going to open myself up to a ton of criticism here, because I’m sure I probably made fun of someone for this at some point in the past.  Here we go anyway…
So I got a new work bag to carry my laptop and whatnot.  My other one started to rip where the shoulder strap [...]
