What have I learned riding the MTA New York City Transit
What have I learned riding the MTA NYC transit 😀 Subway.
1 -To dress in layers
2 – To stay away from local trains
3 – To stay away from kids
4 – To be prepared to meet my next best friend. Or a long lost friend. Or – actually once I met the same friend even twice – in different trains and different stations – randomly. Yeah, subway is great for meeting people.
5 – To carry some change. One can spot something spectacular any moment. And I’ve started to get used to the whole tipping culture.
6 – To carry a book. Somehow the trains come so much faster when I have something else to do…
7 – Not to try to sneak in with somebody else’s MetroCard. It’s not worth it (they’re going to fine you and all that)
Anyway, I’m figuring just riding the subway all day one would see A LOT of authentic New York. Anything is possible and anything can happen.
Recently they have been really cheap with the service, though.
