Mom Delivers Baby on NYC Subway; Alone

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

These 'subway heroes' ain't got nothin on Wanda Dueno. [PHOTO: BuzzFeed.com]
Every so often I like to post true tales of subway heroism… A boy who lived in the NYC subway system… A drunk woman pulled out of the way of an oncoming train in the Boston “T”… No pants subway riders… uh… hem hem.

Anyway, here comes the story of one woman who truly deserves to be called an underground super hero…

Caution: This McDonald’s Ad May Offend You If You’re From Far Rockaway

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

McDonald's pulled this ad because it may have offended residents of Far Rockaway. [PHOTO: NY Daily News]
This recent ad on the NYC Subway caught my attention. I grew up riding the L.I.R.R. between Manhattan and my home town of Valley Stream on the south shore. Far Rockaway is the eastern terminus of my line, and where I suspect many LIRR and Subway riders over the years have found themselves after a little in-transit catnap. So to me, this McDonald’s ad is pretty funny. Residents of Far Rockaway didn’t see the humor and demanded that the ad be pulled. Mickey D’s gave in. I still find the ad funny.

Hey, is it just me, or does anyone else think there are far too many McDonald’s ads on mass transit? I’ll have to do a post on that.

A Better Bus Stop Sign for Rochester

Monday, April 25th, 2011

I believe RTS could ease the lives of all of its customers and gain a substantial number of new riders simply by redesigning the bus stop signs. And I'm not afraid to donate some free design services to get us there. Here's my proposed redesign…

While visiting Seattle a few years ago something occurred to me. Here I was on the other side of the country in a city I had never been to before in my life, and I was navigating their bus system like seasoned Seattleite. There were no fancy digital real-time signs, I had no smart phone, no GPS anything… I didn’t even have a printed schedule. I didn’t need any of those things because I had this…

iPhone Band Rocks It Out On NYC Subway

Monday, October 18th, 2010

Atomic Tom holds an impromptu jam session on the B train. Or maybe it was planned... but who the f*ck cares it's freakin awesome.

The latest subway performance making the rounds actually has a tech-angle. A band known as Atomic Tom recently staged an “impromptu” show on the B train, but played one of their songs using only iPhones. The video was uploaded to YouTube and has since logged more than 633K views.

Watch this…

‘Star Wars’ Invades The New York City Subway System

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

One of the wonderful things about living in New York City for an artist is having the opportunity to share your work with any number of people at a moment’s notice. No matter the time of day, whether you’re in the park, strolling along the sidewalk or traveling via mass transit, there’s always someone around, always a captive audience…

Rochester Misses Out on a “No Pants Subway Ride”

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Yet another reason to bring back the Rochester Subway… We’re missing out on No Pants Day! Hundreds of New Yorkers stripped down to their skivvies on Sunday for the ninth annual No Pants Subway Ride. The event, organized by a Guerilla group called Improv Everywhere, has grown from 7 or 8 people riding the NY Subway in 2002 to over 3,000 people taking part in 44 cities and 16 countries around the world.

Boy Lived in NYC Subway for 11 Days

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

Francisco Hernandez Jr., who has Asperger's, a developmental disorder that affects the ability to socialize and communicate, disappeared on October 15, after he thought he was in trouble at school, according to his mother, Marsiela Garcia of Brooklyn. [source: CNN]

Until now I’ve tried to keep the subway stories I post limited to those out of the abandoned Rochester Subway. But recently there have been a rash of great stories from the underground I’ve just had to share. There was the drunken lady who fell onto the tracks in the Boston Subway. Then the unfortunate murder on the “D” train in Manhattan. And here’s another one. We’ve all heard stories of people living in New York’s subway tunnels. And you might immediately conjure up an image in your head of what such a person would look like. But how about a mild mannered 13 year old boy? Watch the video…

The NYC Metro Cuff

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

Accessorize with the NYC Metro Cuff—a matte metal bracelet embossed with the subway lines, numbers and streets of Manhattan.

By now everyone knows that if you want to project yourself as an über-urbanite, you need to have a subway map hanging on your wall. And if you want to take your überness to the streets you need something like a subway t-shirt. But if a transit t-shirt sounds more über-geek than über-chic, feast your eyes on the new NYC Metro Cuff…
