    The MTA is now inventing new ways to torture us.

    My train ride home yesterday, it was announced that for TWO stops on the line, doors for ONLY the front car would open, and indeed only ONE door at that. So dozens (hundreds?) of us had to pile into one car. It was a like a scene ouf of Schindler's List. Even worse, it was one of hte new, "better" trains that have the 10,000 SqF bathrooms, so very few seats.

    And then the goddamn conducter came through bitching at people to clear the aisles. Was he kidding? Didn't sound like it. I wanted to punch him.

    Then, when we got there, there was no bridge plate after all and the train pulled up to the platform as normal, and all the doors opened.

    Thanks, MTA!

    MTA or Metro North? :confused: I'm not sure they're connected...

    Nice report on some Metro North surveillance findings:

    Metro North is run by the MTA.

    Grew up in Queens and didn't get a drivers license until I graduated college.

    Then again, I lived right by the 7 train and about 15 blocks from the E, F, R.

    I'm not saying to walk across the borough, but attempting to drive and park 10 blocks away is absurd.

    the one thing I miss about brooklyn, was that I would see women that hot at the dog parks and you end up talking to them for 45min just because you're fellow dog owners. A lot of the time they're neighbors and you become neighbor/friends! Hell you even see women that pretty (but in hipster clothing and some tattoos) at the dog park in Bushwick.

    Women that hot don't live in Brooklyn, Bushwick. Nice try though.

    they do! bushwick has a lot of model dens now (where they house many models into cramped apartments) because they were getting priced out of SoHo, and even Williamsburg.
