New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: No Exit

No exit 600

 

This bit of hilarity can be found at Court Square just above the platform for the Crosstown Local. Those of you who are wondering what the real reason is for the MTA want to implement another fare hike? Look no further. Here it is: a budgetary shortfall for “Caution” tape.

 

 

Crosstown Local Photo Du Jour: Waiting

Waiting For The G nys

Today yours truly sojourned around parts Greenpoint, Bedford Stuyvesant, Crown Heights and Prospect Heights. My “ride” was, of course, the good ol’ Crosstown Local. The G train. My “commute” was surprisingly, disquietingly trouble free. As you can see in the above photo (taken around 5:30 this afternoon at the Metropolitan Avenue stop— and is much better appreciated/viewed in larger format) others— many others— were not so lucky. The entire platform looked like this. Good times.

The Word On The Street: Special 7 Train Edition

Court Square nys

Sunnyside Social Club nys

Presenting the “Sunnyside Social Club” as discovered today at Court Square. Rules are welcome, but alas “bitches” are not.

So be it. I will simply establish my own club appointed with its own bigger, better cardboard box. It will be identified not with a paltry ballpoint pen. Such devices are the stuff of practicing amateurs, I assure you. Rather a Sharpie marker will be pressed into service. Hell, I may even kick it up a couple notches and roll out a paint pen. Or ( dare I say it???) a Dymo label maker! It goes without saying (but I will do so here anyway so as to clear up any possible confusion) that “bitches”, assholes and malcontents of all stripes will be welcome. So there.

P.S.: While I am on the subject (of the MTA, Queens and confusion) the following service notice confused the ever-loving shit out of me.

Confusing Service Notice nys

Note the copious use of the word “about”. You gotta love this kind of ambiguity from an entity which recently imposed a rather unpopular fare hike. Well played, MTA!
