Apparently, there were budget cuts in the Times Square signage office.  They were unable to afford shipping fees for the “8″ in 2008.
So, a crew of guys carried the 500 pound 8 onto the subway from the Bronx all the way to Times Square.  They took the 6 and R trains to get there.
Judging by [...]

Ummm…why is everyone so impressed with the good grades the S train received in the Rider’s Reportcard?
How hard could it possibly be to run a train that has only one stop?  If you can’t manage to do that well, you need to find a new line of work.  It’s no shock to us that the [...]

Seriously folks?  Is this what it has come to?
I know it has been a couple days since I last posted (company in town), but I take my eye off the ball for one second and we’ve got Christmas music in the mall.
I enjoy holidays like Veteran’s Day because it usually means I can get a [...]

2 and 3 Trains skip 72nd Street.
Live from the subway, back to you in studio…

UPDATE: Turns out is was a person on the tracks…and then under the [...]

Honestly, how long should a subway platform renovation really take? Entire 10 story buildings have been built in the time it has taken for them to set up partitions at the 59th Street/Columbus Circle station.
Ok, I can understand that the physical platforms where the trains arrive can be a little tricky. Clearly, you [...]

Ok, I just have to get this off my chest. The New York Post has these f*cking stupid ads up on the subway for “Page Six.” They are taking their already lame section and turning it into a Sunday magazine.
“It’s Free in the Sunday New York Post.” Which means it’s not [...]
