Whatever man. This was a daily occurrence when I was in high school. 

FTA: "No one ever apologized or said anything about it," said Frederick. "I've been living here for 20 years, and I was much more surprised that no one reacted than that it happened."

Seriously? You've been living in NYC for 20 years and you're surprised that no one reacted to a 30 year old prank? Either you're lying about how long you've been in NY or you're and idiot. Maybe both.

. "I've been living here for 20 years, and I was much more surprised that no one reacted than that it happened."

Really, you've lived in NYC 20 years? And it's the first time you've ever noticed New Yorkers not reacting to something stupid on the subway? really? Really? REALLY?

Apparently, they've all been on a train in Brooklyn before.

/they probably just didn't notice it was coming over the PA and not from the drunk homeless guy swaying from a hanging strap

This is news?

So when the Post is tired of simply inventing stories, they switch to meaningless day to day events I guess.

I had a service alert sign torn from the NY Subway hanging in my office that read "NO B & D TRAINS TO BROOKLYN."

I particularly liked the line where the writer insinuates that it may have been an MTA employee rather than the teenager we all know it was.
 
2019-03-14 10:23:12 AM  
Crap. My train of thought is still at the station.
 
2019-03-14 10:27:03 AM  
If I were mayor of NYC I'd rename one subway station "Your Momma" and one "On Her Back" so anyone in NYwith a few bucks can hop on You Momma and get off On Her Back.

/I know it costs more than your real mom, but it's still a nice tribute.
 
2019-03-14 10:27:15 AM  
Nobody reacted because nobody could hear it.

It seems like every announcement that's been made on every train I've been on for the last 2-3 years has either been at the level of a whisper or distorted and unintelligible.
 
2019-03-14 10:27:41 AM  
People can understand what the subway announcements are?
 
2019-03-14 10:32:14 AM  
The announcement was Colbert Report replay about Muslim spokeswomen. Come on, New York!

There are two things you need to know when you're downtown. Houston is pronounced HOW-STON and
Canal is pronoucned CANE-AL

(Things I tell tourists)
 
2019-03-14 10:49:10 AM  
Also, this has happened at least three times that I can remember on subways that I've been on.

Every time it has involved some kid yelling obscenities into the P.A.  I think it may actually be some required rite-of-passage into manhood thing for prepubescent boys.
 
2019-03-14 10:55:45 AM  
First of all, she has not been living in NYC for 20 years if she is surprised that nobody reacted.  Second, she does not normally ride the R train.  That happens everyday on the R train. I tyake the R every dam day and the same kid does it evey damn day
 
2019-03-14 11:04:21 AM  
My drunk ass friends did this one night on the way back from the Village in the early '90s. It was one of those (now) older cars that had conductor booths on both sides of the car (instead of straight across) so the conductor would occasionally have to switch cars because the platform would be on the other side. It was late night/early morning and the conductor had to know it was us but he apparently didn't care (it helps we didn't do this until we were just a few stops from getting off the train).

brap: Canal is pronoucned CANE-AL


Unless you are just trolling the tourists, that's not how you pronounce it. It's pronounced CA-NAL (just listen to a traffic report).

It's been 15 years since I took the subway everyday.  There was NEVER an intelligible announcement.  I'm surprised this story was in The Sun.

I assume the MTA is like the London tube.

If you raise an eyebrow in response to someone behaving like a lout, you are clearly a tourist.

Better take the D train to Brighton Beach.
 
2019-03-14 11:15:38 AM  
And for the first time in decades, an announcement on a NY subway was understandable.

and lets not forget how to pronounce the Van Wyck Expressway...Is is Van WIKE, or Van WICK?

I've heard traffic people pronounce it both ways...

bonus points for...Pronouncing Goethals's bridge correctly.

Von VEEK.

Gittles.

"I'm on the Goethals. I'm drinking Manhattans."
(Not "on the Garbos", as online song-lyrics sites have it. I think. The "official" lyrics on tomwaits.com have a different line altogether.)

Houstoun st became Houston st at some point but New Yorkers didn't change the pronunciation.

Canal is pronounced like canal, unless you're a TV character.

Either, actually.  The rumor is that the original  road was named after a local farmer, some say it was named after a former mayor and both may have pronounced it differently.

WIKE is most likely the right one, but you never tell New Yorkers how to talk.

880 WCBS, 1010 WINS, NJ 101.5 and any other radio station that covers traffic, particularly during the evening rush hour.

Houston St really is pronounce HOW-STON. Sam Houston pronounced his name differently from what I remember.
