The subway gets a bad rap sometimes from people who dont live in NYC. Since some of my friends moved into the big apple it has become my only form of transportation. Don't get me wrong, I still need thorough instructions of which trains to take where but I'm slowly starting to get the hang of it and once you know where you're going it really is a piece of cake.
There is a different world underground..and it's not full of rapists and drug dealers like your momma told ya..It's the soul of the city..I never feel more like a New Yorker then when I'm on the subway..next time you're in town ditch the cab and opt for the quicker, cheaper option. You might just see Jane Lynch or find yourself unexpectedly entertained..
I LOVE NY :)
