Train hopping

A subway ride experience in the greater New York area can be crowded, empty, stressful, peaceful, frustrating, smelly,etc it totally depends on what line you ride, what time of day it is and what direction you are headed. In the end the NYC metro does what you pay for, it gets everyyone from point A to B for $2.25-  yes, sometimes it can take you forever but when it’s right, when you catch every train/transfer you need and get to where you need to be on time or ahead of schedule- I know I’m the first to explode with ” I just had the best train luck, experience ever!”

Riding the D train in Midtown, Manhattan. After I took this shot, a woman next to me, glared at me and said "you should turn off the shutter..."

This man was filming a "passed out, covered" homeless man. For the rest of the ride we chatted, and he thought the "homeless" man was actually an undercover cop, because there was no smell.

$2.25 pays your fare to get you to and from your destination but the human circus is free.
