    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I've always wondered if they opened the wrong side of doors and somebody leaning on the doors falls and gets stuck in between the wall and the train.

    I'm just waiting for White Flight II, then I'll actually be sitting pretty in the cool neighborhood.

    there has to be something to prevent this. The danger is not somebody falling, it's falling onto the third rail.

    Well, if you are standing right on the third rail it is no big deal. If you pick up one foot and touch it to something else, that's when it is a problem. That said, one would likely not fall perfectly on a third rail unless they were a gymnast.

    that reminds me of this gem from a while back that show that being trashed and public transportation don't always mix.

    To be fair, I think we mostly refer to streets and avenues just by name, but don't indicate street or avenue.

    this is a threak where an odd number of people like to lurk, mostly non NYers.

    some are better lurking than others.
    I see you, TC (Houston).

    Wait, what? An Asian dude taking pictures in NY? You're right, that's really weird.

    I lived in NYC for 25 years, LES, UES, and then in Brooklyn, Sheepshead Bay and Brighton Beach.

    Can I lurk a bit?

    you actually post though. It's interesting, at least to me, to see the lurkers.

    I'm pretty sure it's because my posts are usually really great, and I post a lot in here.
