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.

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 [...]

If you haven’t seen or heard, the NFL has taken over all of Columbus Circle.  Tomorrow, it grows even more.
It’s all for the “NFL Kickoff” celebration tomorrow featuring performances by Usher, Keith Urban, and Natasha Bedingfield.
There’s an enormous stage taking up the width of Central Park South.  The stage is set up on Columbus Circle [...]

I’m in an R train at city hall.  We’re being held here because of a track fire south of  Rector St.  They said FDNY is on scene.
They’re telling us to get off and go uptown to canal.  All downtown traffic on the Broadway line is going over the bridge.
Side note, apparently NJT and LIRR are [...]

Apparently there is a strange odor at the 53rd and 7th station that has caused it to be evacuated.
B, D, and E trains are bypassing the station at this time, and last we heard, passengers are not being allowed to enter the station.  However, the MTA says the V train is running with residual delays.  [...]

Further proof that the MTA is an embarrassing bureaucracy.
The MTA released the results of a comprehensive study that found the subway is dirty.  Folks, I wish it was a joke.  The MTA’s advocacy group’s 61 page [gasp] report said the stations are dirty aaaaaand many of them are literally falling apart.
Read the report for yourself.
Honestly, [...]

Holy crap!  Was the MTA listening to us?
Remember back in June when we were talking about how cool it would be to have train cars without seats (aka standing room only)?  Yeah, guess what?
They’re doing it!  (Read Here)
In about 6 months, retrofitted cars will hit the rails as part of a pilot program.  Among the [...]

Is the NYPD really flaunting the new starting salary for recruits?  It’s $32,881.  Where in Manhattan can you live for $32k a year?  Hell, it hard to make ends meet with twice that.
Well, the NYPD is making sure you know about it with half takeover ads on the subway.  If you haven’t seen them already, [...]
