There’s no real reason for this post. I was going through old family photos this weekend and stumbled upon these ones from a boat tour around Manhattan island my wife and I took in 2004. By complete coincidence we sailed directly in front of the infamous Spirit of Ontario I (a.k.a. Fast Ferry) on her maiden voyage to Rochester…

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…

I admit I’m a bit of a news junkie. And with all the violence reported in the media I’m also a bit apathetic to most stories. It’s not that I don’t care—it’s quite the opposite actually. I’m just numb. Occasionally though I come across a story so horrific it sends a chill thru my veins. Like this one for example. At about 2am Saturday morning (11/21/2009) a man was stabbed to death in the NYC Subway—over a seat.
Now I’ve done my share of walking in Manhattan and I can empathize with just about any New Yorker who complains that their feet hurt—but I just can’t imagine killing someone because of it.

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…
