The Second Avenue Subway

One of my favorite things about living in New York City is our public transportation system. As much as we gripe about it, every time I visit a city with a less comprehensive system, I return to my city with renewed appreciation for our buses and subways.

The Second Avenue Subway seemed like it took forever to build. Now that it’s open, it makes traveling from East to West via the underground network on our little island much easier.

And it’s so clean!

    1. Yes, it is. However, it does depend on what time of day you’re traveling, which line you’re using, and what part of our widespread system is your waiting point. It’s a nightmare to wait on the 42nd Street platform for the #1, 2 and 3 train at rush hour. It’s also not a lot of fun to be at 66th Street when school lets out. The Second Avenue Line, because it’s only about six weeks old, is quite sparse most of the day. I imagine morning and evening rush tell another story. 😉 xoM

  1. Your subway system is so overwhelming. However, i do enjoy taking the train into Grand Central from CT.

    Your photo depicts exactly how I feel when I am trying to decipher which way to go!!

    1. Yes, the system is overwhelming. The sheer number of people who use it can be daunting, not to mention the criss-cross of the tracks threading all the boroughs. I like Grand Central, too, Audra. Especially a cup of NE clam chowder in the Oyster Bar! 😉 xoM
