Apparently, Red Stick Men are not allowed to bring Hoverboards onto a NYC Bus, or Subway Train. Now you know.

These free-form, abstract Aluminum sculptures are part of a series called Mermade/Dionysus and the Pirates, created in 1999 by artist Dan George for the MTA’s Arts for Transit program. I think they are pretty cool!

I took these photos on the Q Train platform when catching the train back to Manhattan from the Brighton Beach stop in Brooklyn. See more photos at This Link.

Subway Lines at 14th Street and 6th Ave Reflect Modern Despair

In the summer of 2010, the Manhattan Transit Authority repainted the subway signage at 6th Avenue and 14th Street to reflect the addition of the M train to that station. But nobody really stepped back to check out how “F M L” would read to people walking by on the street. Or maybe they just had no idea what that acronym stands for in the modern vernacular.

Your Train Is Delayed For Eternity


Kafkaesque! (Image Source)

Happy Monday! The 4 and 5 trains were running about 20 minutes behind schedule this morning due to either a stalled number 7 train at 42nd Street/Grand Central or signal problems at Bleecker Street, depending on who you believe. But the delays weren’t anywhere near as bad as these L trains to Brooklyn. Gee wiz. If I had to wait fifteen hundred and thirty four minutes for a train, I’d probably just suck it up and take a cab.
