Getting around NYC

Interested in hearing some of your horror/feel good stories while riding around trains and busses in the city. I take the lirr+3 train every day so people are relatively well behaved.

Got seperated by my friends during the NYG Parade. Started to pour and I had to figure out what subway to take. Only scary part was I wasnt sure if i was taking the correct subway. I was.

my friend fell asleep a few weeks ago on the Q train on our way back from stuffing our faces at nathans in coney island....i have a droid phone with an airhorn ap....i put the phone by his ear and hit the air horn, it scared him so much he jumped up and punched me in the face in front of about 30 people standing around us. HILARIOUS


i was in times square getting nuts4nuts with my friends at like 1am and a really drunk dude with dread locks was literally peeing on my parents SUV which we took to the city for the night....needless to say the car is a piece of crap and me and my friends were dying laughing...more upset at the fact that we couldnt miss this dudes junk hanging out


i saw a homeless person fall down the stairs into penn station when we were leaving a game one night

my friends and i were going to the car show and my friend got hit by a limo LOLOLOLOL

I love the city. I don't really have any horror stories as i've always had good luck finding my way around and using the public transportation. Although I did get to ride my sport bike (r1) through the city a few times and that's always a treat. Gas, brake, avoid yellow car, gas.

The F train really smells. It's dark looking and dank. Overly crowded. I just don't use that line anymore. Now that's a line that can use them new trains.

Haha once five of us were taking the subway downtown. Four of us had our metrocards, and went through. The 5th had to get a new one. Our train was there, but since we were waiting for the 5th guy, we sat on the benches and figured we'd catch the next one.

Just as the doors are closing, we hear "I'M COMING GUYS!" as our friend runs through the turnstile and literally does a flying headfirst leap through the doors. We are standing there in shocked amazement as the doors close and the train heads off.

We found him waiting for us at the next stop.

Yeah, the F is pretty bad but in terms of smell, it comes nowhere near the funk of the 456. Hands down the smelliest (but newer) trains in the city. It's just because of the sheer amount of people it carries every day. I guess the T will alleviate this once it's built.

It's the MTA so probably never, but they'll keep dumping money into it!

They say 2015, I believe. I live on 2nd Avenue and ride the 6 every day so I wish they'd get it done already.
