AMNY reports that the Manhattan borough president wants to have the police crack down on subway pervsattacking and harassing people in the subway.
Scott Stringer’s office asked commuters how often someone sexually attacked or harassed them in the subway, and found frightening results. More than 60 percent of those who responded to the online study said [...]

Yeah, so it’s rainy as hell, but at least it’s a little cooler out today. That’s a refreshing change.
Unfortunately, it is still humid as hell on the subway. I had the unlucky fortune of getting on car without air conditioning. It was just as crowded as always, so that kinda kept me [...]

All I gotta say is two things.  1) I told you so and 2) good luck getting to work on the East Side tomorrow.
Ok, so earlier today, I ranted on and on about how shockingly perfect my morning commute was despite the horrible weather.  At the end, I mentioned that I hoped it would continue [...]

People are all over Mayor Bloomberg’s Congestion Pricing plan. The opponents keep calling it a tax, because the word “tax” sounds evil. In reality, it’s a toll. Sure, there’s an argument to be made about tolls really just being taxes, but let’s call it what it is. It’s a toll for [...]

Ok, so can we discuss how f-ed up the past couple days of subway ridership have been?

I have a ton of music on my iPod, but I prefer to listen to [...]

Ok, I was wrong!  I take it all back.  The concept of glass doors on the subway platforms is the best idea I’ve ever heard of.  After Bloomberg gets done solving the congestion pricing issue, he needs to work on this.  He would truly be a hero.
Back in April, SUBWAYblogger laughed at the idea of [...]

Did you venture to the Lower East Side last night for fireworks?  Remember your umbrella?   Well, SUBWAYblogger did.
It wasn’t bad getting there really.  We transferred at Times Square and took the downtown N train.  Not much waiting time at around 7:30pm.  Took that down to 23rd Street.
Since we got there a little ahead of schedule, [...]
