Has anyone else noticed that rogue 2 train that keeps making the old-school announcements?
For example, the prerecorded female voice says, “You can transfer to the 1 or 9 train.”
9 train?  Uhhh hello.
And it seems on the older announcements, the male voice was virtually nonexistent.  Wonder how long those will run before someone from the MTA [...]

The weather is getting warmer, that’s for sure.  Today wasn’t especially warm, but for some ladies the summer clothes are out and they’re not going back till the fall.
With that comes the lowcut tops, short shorts, and micro skirts. This is truly one of New York’s greatest treasures, IMHO.
Today, there was a young lady sitting [...]

Snoooooooooow.
This morning’s snow really pisses me off.  I was totally getting into the thought of it becoming spring.  Even on Friday, it was really nice.  You barely needed a jacket.  Then, wham!  All this snow.
It’s total bull.
So it should make this morning’s commute a gem.  Actually, what will really be interesting is when it all [...]

Around 7:30am, a report of a person struck by a train went out across police radios.
The incident occurred around 116th Street & Broadway on the Uptown 1 line.  The thing we find odd is the report that the person was dead on arrival between 116th and 125th.  That makes it sound like the person may [...]

Wierd Transfers?

Posted on February 14th, 2009 by The SUBWAYblogger in Live Blogging On the Subway

Sometimes the local train [...]

I don’t know what it is.  Maybe god id punishing me for talking about fat people on SUBWAYblogger.
Lord knows the haters start bashing away in the comments every time I bring up the subject.
So before I get into the point of this post, let me say a few things for the record

No, I don’t [...]

Alright.  I admit it.  I had to ask for directions today on the subway.  I’m not terribly proud of it either.
We had company in town this weekend, and went downtown to the Seaport, etc.  We were going to take the 2,3 down, but that got all messed up because uptown, the trains stopped running for [...]

That’s what I would like to suggest as a new revenue stream at the MTA hearings.  It would be nice to go and get a quick coldie while on the train.
Or maybe on the platforms.  You could install bars on the platforms.  Just get rid of some of the magazine stands and convert them to [...]
