Ahh the joy of coming back from a long holiday weekend only to be hit in the thighs by the turnstile because your Metrocard has expired.
That’s the joy that many New Yorkers experienced this morning. Lines at the Metrocard machines this morning were very long. It’s funny to see how many people buy their [...]

Here’s a new SubTalk poster I love…
“Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.”
First of all, this must be false. Of that low number, I bet they weren’t all New Yorkers, but we can let it slide.
What I find hilarious is that all year long, there were only 1,944 people who actually said [...]

Ugh…you know it’s not good when you get to the subway and see 7 fire trucks parked around your subway entrance, you could be in for a long morning. In this case, it was a little suspicious.

I know I’ve said it before, but I really enjoy the School of Visual Arts subway ads. The just recently put up a new campaign. They are even more clever that the last batch!
You can’t beat the slogan either, “How bad do you want to be good?” Makes me want to be an artist. [...]

Maybe it’s because I’m a New Yorker and a regular subway rider, but a calm mornings are always a little tense.
