Amid all of humanity’s fantastical projections of future technology, one stands out: we may live to see a day when it is impossible to piss between moving New York City subway cars.
Crossrail, London’s new subway system (and Europe’s biggest infrastructure project) is nearing completion: the holes have been dug, and now there’s just the little matter of kitting them out.
New Yorkers aren’t exactly known for taking leisurely strolls, but leisurely subway riding? The concept is as foreign as ketchup on pizza. That’s why most city slickers will have no idea that the longest non-repeating subway route is 155 miles and includes over 54 transfers. Why should they? Who on Earth is ever going…
This won’t exactly be startling news to New Yorkers, but it is, like, really hot right now. As in it’s 106 degrees Fahrenheit waiting for the subway.
What do you want to be when you grow up? A baseball player? A doctor? A blogger (LOL)? How about a badass who carves caves through the Earth to improve the lives of millions in America's greatest city? That sounds pretty heroic. And right now, hundreds of hard hat-wearing workers are tackling that grand task…
I could have never imagined this could be possible: Watch this guy getting out of a London subway car and running all the way to next station to get back inside the same subway car.
New York has one of the oldest and biggest subways in the world, and as it has expanded, the city has used almost every letter in the alphabet to name its new lines. Conspicuously absent? The P line. Probably for the exact reason you'd imagine.
The Second Avenue Subway is more than 80 years in the making. Some said it would never be done. Yet, deep underneath Manhattan this spring, the final framework is being laid for a system that will carry millions of commuters through the city—and it looks downright primordial.
New York subway riders first were promised futuristic touchscreen wayfinding maps a year ago. But the plan to install the futuristic infrastructure stalled as the design team took a step back to improve the hardware. Six months overdue, the first batch is finally live in Grand Central Station. They were worth the wait.
Watch these two idiots take the J train over the Williamsburg Bridge the hard way — by "surfing" on the outside of the train. You know, because, like, YOLO or something.
People tend to really want a seat when they got on the subway, so I totally get this. The joy on their faces just from being able to get on is completely understandable. The insane rush though, I'm still working on.
New York City's Metro Transit Authority is still plugging away on its giant project to bring the 7 train into far west Manhattan, and the scope of the construction is just as awe-inspiring as ever. The MTA just put out a crop of new pictures on Flickr, and we just can't help but see a slight comparison to a certain,…
New York City is doing some serious work on the Second Avenue Subway, the first new line built under the city since 1932. The $4.5 billion project aims to decrease commuter congestion for east Manhattan. Check out these pictures. They are incredible.
Liberals love Subaru cars. In certain woodsy towns filled with wealthy former hippies, Subarus have long been the default automobile. So why is the company now mocking public transportation, the most hallowed of elite coastal liberal institutions?
Earlier today, a large watermain broke around the Flatiron Building on 23rd Street here in New York City. Water mains break all the time, this isn't anything new.
Hey New York City Jalops, if you've got some traveling to do and you don't have access to a car, now's the time to do it.
Taking the subway (streetcar?) to deliver pizza when you're already riding a scooter sets new standards in laziness.
