I arrived on the platform today, and to my excitement, I thought the transit gods had smiled upon me.
This morning, there is no one on the train! A light crowd on the platform and only a few people standing on the train. There were even open seats!
Then it hit me: today is a Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashanah. I always new that there were a lot of Jews in NYC, but you really don’t notice until a Jewish holiday comes around. All of a sudden, you look up and you are one of 3 gentiles that showed up at work! Everyone else is out for the day.
Hey, I’ll take this any day. I guess if the rest of us need to go to work, a nice consolation prize is a stress free ride to work.
Will the afternoon ride be even less busy? We’ll have to wait and see…
Live from the subway, back to you in studio…

I’ve never seen the London Underground like that
