subway announcements

March 23, 2006 Leave a comment

of the legible announcements i’ve heard on the subway (roughly 10%) these past few months, what i heard this morning ranks as the new number one (followed by the former number 1).

  1. when packing into a downtown local 1 train at 86th street: “there are 30 sets of doors to enter the train, please use all of them.  this is not noah’s ark.  if you can’t fit in the car in front of you, try another set of doors.  if that doesn’t work, try to wait for another train.”
  2. when traveling on a northbound 2 train near the fulton street stop: “change here for the 3, 4, 5, a, c, j, m, z trains and the PATH trains to Neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew Jersey!”
