The Kia Motors and NBA Tip Off Celebration Event in Union Square is this week.  They’re setting up a basketball court, have a DJ, yadda yadda.  There will be current and former players there too apparently.
It’s all coming up on October 28th.
A publicist for the event says, “To say the least, it-is-going-to-be-insane.”
Perhaps.

Railfan Porn

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

I know I’m a big subway geek and all.  I mean, this is a three year old blog about the subway.  So I’d say I’m ranking up there in world of subway geekdom.
Some people are on a whole different level, though.

Kinda cool, right?  Somehow this cam was mounted on the front of a 7 train [...]

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 [...]

F Train Likes it Deeeeep

Deep underground that is. NYC the Blog provides this look at what is probably the deepest subway station in the city, the F train at 63rd and Lex.

It is a rough day when those escalators break down.

Friday Video Fun

A guy who does a dead on impression of the “subway door closing” tone.  (Just when you thought you’ve seen it all.)
Happy Friday everyone.

NYC Sound Tracks Season Finale

Posted on September 13th, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in Video, Weekend

Who’s the best Subway musician?  Guess we’ll find out tomorrow at 8pm when the finalists perform again.
Kind of funny that this show might launch someone’s career out of the subway.  Like they would ever go back to playing on the platform after this…haha.
Watch it on MSG.

An Oldie, but a Goodie

Posted on September 8th, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in Video

This video is really old, but it’s still a favorite of mine.  A couple hundred people freeze in place in the middle of Grand Central.  I think I love these improv things because it must piss off the NYPD.

On my way home today, I checked out what I had predicted to be insanity in Columbus Circle…the NFL Kickoff show.  I shot this quick clip of Keith Urban performing on stage.

I didn’t stick around long.
Shockingly, the subway was not at all busy.  This morning, I asked a transit cop if the entrances would be [...]
