Experience NYC’s Subway 

Everyone should experience a ride on the New York City Subway. After all, it’s the largest transit system in the world. Grab a map, choose Express or Local, find the correct platform (the signs are posted on both sides), then check the different lines, letters, and numbers. It’s time to hop aboard. Everyone does it. New Yorkers survive by using it, daily commuters with steady employment insist on it, tourists rely on it to get to popular attractions, and party-seekers need the connections from uptown to downtown hotspots. Is it crowded? Of course. With over 8.5 million people on the island of Manhattan, that’s a given. Should you avoid all eye contact? Hold on to the pole? Eat your breakfast, or lunch, in front of everyone? Talk on your cell phone? Tell that toddler to stop his insane temper tantrum? Give up your seat for the balding old man? Or take a video of a short-tempered altercation? No worries. These are not unusual or unique disruptions. They simply reflect an ordinary day on the New York City Subway.

  1. As a Brooklynite I take the subway many times each week and despite its many infrastructure problems it’s still such a cheap and quick way to get around the city (if not walking which is my preferred method of transportation). I even take the dog on the train with me in a bag! Glad you’ve had a good trip!

  2. I loved it! Especially the delays and the 120 degree temps in the tunnels! It felt very authentic! I was also pretty stoked to see some authentic giant NYC Sewer Rats! I dig using other cities transit systems!

    • Hahaha! It def is an unforgettable experience. When some guy pushed an older man into the door frame and cut his head, everyone was shocked. The irony was the older man was a retired police officer. Busted! 😜
