Dustin Dibble, 25, of Brooklyn fell onto the subway tracks back in April of 2006.  A train came and ran over his leg.  Unfortunately, the leg had to be amputated at the calf.
Dibble was drunk at the time and reportedly had a BAC of .18.
The courts just awarded him $2.3 million!
They found that the train [...]

So like I said, the rain is bad news.
My ride home was all f-ed up.  I got onto the platform only to see 10,000 other people already waiting for the train delayed due to rain.
By pure miracle, I made it onto the first train that finally came 15 minutes later.  People were getting so pissed [...]

Here’s  disturbing blurb from the AP I came across today:
Federal authorities are warning law enforcement personnel of a possible terror plot against the New York City subway system during the holiday season.
An internal memo obtained by The Associated Press says the FBI has received a “plausible but unsubstantiated” report that al-Qaida terrorists in late September [...]

Deal Drugs on the Subway?

Posted on November 24th, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in Crime

Or at least discuss strategies.  Yikes.
There’s two fairly large, old men that ride the subway every morning.  I see them at least a couple times a month together.  They’re already on the train when I get on, so they must live further uptown.
They have really distinct old-man gravely voices, and are quite round in the [...]

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 [...]

The suspect(s) are in custody and are also reported to have been shot.

New MTA Security Ads

Posted on October 13th, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in Crime, Video

Oh the “See Something, Say Something” lameness continues.  The MTA has some new security ads out.
We took the three of them and strung them together.  They show unattended bags, with no voiceover.  Then shows the tip line phone number.  That’s it.  For some reason, the sound didn’t work when I put them together.  Just imagine [...]

Today I witnessed probably one of the coolest things I think I’ve seen on the subway to date.
There was a small group of teenage kids standing just outside the turnstiles.  You could tell just by looking at them that they were up to no good.
Couldn’t really tell how old they were.  I’m guessing they were [...]
