The nicest looking NYC subway station is, alas, abandoned.

They don't want anybody to fuck it up, that's why.

Yeah, sorry. I couldn't figure out to embed with the video starting at the appropriate time.

Navigate NYC Subway With Giant Touchscreens

In partnership with the Control Group, the New York City MTA has decided to go even more digital with the installation of 47-inch interactive touchscreens in subway stations around the city.

The touchscreens or On The Go interactive HD displays, will not only feature a detailed map of the subway system, but will also show commuters real-time information and updates. They will also be a place for ads, which account for a large portion of the revenue of the MTA.

These interactive touchscreens are meant to make commuting for locals and tourists easier. With a simple tap of the finger, commuters can find out which routes and transfers to take. The screens will also be equipped with two-way communication so users can opt to speak with an actual MTA employee. The interactive kiosks are scheduled to be rolled out later this year.

MTA needs to spend money on infrastructure, not these luxuries. I get it though. It is easier to spend capital dollars than do maintenance.

Hahahahaha that is hilarious.

I always get a kick when people see pictures of people breakdancing and shit on the subway and comment on how cool it must be to see that stuff on your daily commute. It's not cool, or cultural, or anything other than loud and annoying. I don't want someone blasting shitty music and swinging their legs in my face when I am trying to go home after a long day.

God that sounds so obnoxious and fucking selfish on their part.

Not the right place or time to do it, especially if they're doing it during rush hour.
post #1197 of 1735
nice work, pB. If one feels like the must break dance, they they should keep it to the platforms or something. Or union square park.


there was one female hobo that started to sing on my train a few weeks ago. God she was awful. I'd be more moved by a fake store about her AIDS or something.


last night, on the S, there were these two young guys that did a song together (they were clearly not homeless). They were actually quite good, and they made like $15 on the 5 minute ride.

The ones I can't stand are the folks that come thru the train with kids. Daily. Really? There's this one young dood that sits on the stairs going down to the train talking on his cell with his like 5 y/o daughter begging for money. Ugh.
post #1199 of 1735
yeah that's annoying. The kids always look bored out of their minds, and I usually wonder why aren't they in school.


one time, this woman was going through with her child claiming how hungry he was, but the kid had to be pushing 300 lbs. My mind couldn't choose between "he doesn't look that hungry" and "if you're that fat, then you're always starving"

I remember some beggar was going on about how hungry he was and he looked at me and said, I haven't eaten I bet you've eaten, (I'm not fat) I kind of chuckled because, well, I don't eat during the day. I wanted to call him a pussy.
