“…and it starts with you go f**k yourself.”
On the newer trains (like the 2 train), they’ve added some more public service announcements.  They aren’t especially new, but they seem to be playing them a lot more, and they’re starting to piss SUBWAYblogger off.
For the longest time, you only had a couple basic announcements from the [...]

A guest post from noisiestpassenger.com.
The post-work subway ride uptown on Friday is my favorite of the week. I can always get a seat from the Wall Street stop, as people tend to leave their offices earlier. Because we get to sleep late the next day or have fun weekend plans too large for a cubicle, [...]

Around 7:30am, a report of a person struck by a train went out across police radios.
The incident occurred around 116th Street & Broadway on the Uptown 1 line.  The thing we find odd is the report that the person was dead on arrival between 116th and 125th.  That makes it sound like the person may [...]

I swiped at the turnstile and walked right into the bar.  My Metrocard expired and I totally forgot.  So like an idiot, I had to squeeze back out and get one.
Then the Metrocard machine I went up to was not working for some reason.  It wouldn’t read any [...]

The whole project has been a huge joke.  Some stations have had them installed for months if not a year or more.  The kicker…they’ve never [...]

Deal Drugs on the Subway?

Posted on November 24th, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in Crime

Or at least discuss strategies.  Yikes.
There’s two fairly large, old men that ride the subway every morning.  I see them at least a couple times a month together.  They’re already on the train when I get on, so they must live further uptown.
They have really distinct old-man gravely voices, and are quite round in the [...]

The music is good and everything, but I’d tip them more if they were handing out margaritas.  I’m just saying.
If those kids can sell candy bars for their “basketball team,” these guys should be able to shake one up on the rocks for me.
