It was ind of cool to see how much they are fundamentally the same as the current train cars, even if everything has been updated.

Saw that on the news yesterday. Didn't get to ride one...

100%


though I didn't move to Brooklyn to connect with the hipster crowd (a crowd which is much smaller than I originally thought). I moved because manhattan landlords are terrified of 70 lb pitbulls (who is now best friends with Booth)

It was fun. My daughter really loved it and all the people in the car were taking pictures.

Well, given his diet, Booth probably smells like meat so that makes sense.

i can't, for the life of me, understand how a rubber or leather strap hanging from the ceiling offers any stability when the train is moving around

You must have very, very limited life experiences.

When I was based in New York, I had a crashpad in Jackson Heights and used the Q33 bus service to LGA often. On the cheap, the Q70, or whatever runs from LGA to Jackson Heights Station then the 7 or E or whatever into Manhattan takes a little less than an hour and costs $2.25. Not a bad option. The express bus is way better than the Q33 and if you get an express train it can be 30ish minutes into Manhattan from LGA.

I used to do the Q33-E Train-AirTrain to get to JFK at 4-5am. Was quite an adventure.

$2.50. Make sure you have exact change or a Metrocard.

Your defficiency of understanding is larger than I thought. The ability to undestand hand-holds is almost perfectly independent from age.

go back to the Houston thread, or go talk about more of your boring looking furniture in the formerly "cool furniture" thread

Rode the subway today. I didn't encounter any bodily fluids (or used condoms), but should I start my 21-day ebola clock now out of an abundance of caution? If it helps with your deliberation, I was on the R.
