When winter rolls around, everyone is bundled up right down to the snow pants. The complete opposite of the summer time.
This generally means an all around comfortable ride. Even if the heat isn’t working on the train, the body heat keeps the cars comfortable. In the summer, if the AC cuts out, then you might as well grab the 3rd rail.
Also, when you get packed in tightly with other standing passengers, the coats, parkas, and mittens act as padding. It’s “cozy”. In the same situation during the summer, you’re packed up against a sweaty guy at best.
So yeah it is cold on the streets, but its a strange heaven for the subway!
Live from the subway, back to you in studio…
