Subway A-Holes!

I posted earlier on getting around during the July 4th festivities. Well apparently the people thought this weekend would be great to not have the 2 or 5 trains run between 3rd Ave-E 149th St to E 180th. That means no train service at my station.

Of course the shuttle buses offered as an alternative doesn’t run on a schedule. I ended up taking the BX19 bus, planning to take it to 3rd Ave-E 149th St. As it approached Hunts Point, I realized I could take the 6 train to 59th St, then switch to the N or R trains to my destination. Even with all those transfers, it would be faster than staying on the bus & dealing with chaos at 3rd Ave-E 149th St. 

Luckily the 6 train didn’t have any service changes, other than skipping 103rd St. But when I got off at 59th St I saw signs saying there was no N/Q/R train service. I managed to get back on the 6 train I had gotten off, but in another car. I was the last person who could fit in it. I got off at 28th St & walk over to my destination. Somehow I managed to get there earlier than the original time my best friends & I planned to meet. They were both running late because of service changes on their train lines, too. I just waited for them at the north end of Madison Sq Pk.

Today we celebrate America’s Independence Day. For those who are in NYC for the festivities (or just live here), here’s the link for getting around using public transportation.

Wall Platter & Delays

As I approached the top of the station stairs this morning, I noticed a splatter on the lower portion of the station wall. At first I dismissed it as vomit, but as I climbed higher, I realized it was diarrhea splatter. WTF?! It looked recent but luckily the smell had wafted away. Whoever did it had to have pulled down their pants (or lifted their skirt), squatted, & let it go. You have to either be really desperate or have absolutely no shame to do that on an open-air elevated train station.
