Great, another lost tourist.

See, he's not on the A train, he's on a train to the Bronx. Totes different.

Would you normally take this train from certain places and then transfer to one that goes to Bronx?
 
2021-03-01 1:28:28 PM  
The toughest thing I struggled with learning the subway was the levels. My first time there I waited like a half hour for a train that was zooming past two levels below me every few minutes. I got better.

The unforced errors from his campaign have me wondering if he's even serious about this.  Or maybe he should have set his sights a bit lower, like the state house for his first office.

This is important

Looking at the map, it's entirely possible depending on where he's coming from that he could be taking the A train to then transfer to another train to the Bronx.  Completely plausible in a city with a subway.

Thank you Mr. Yang.

According to "the Internet", the A train goes all the way up to 207th Street, roughly a Trump's dick from the Bronx.
 
2021-03-01 1:31:00 PM  
He could transfer to the 1 from the A and go to the bronx. The A uptown ends  at 207th st. in Manhattan.

Right? There's a fat orange moron still screaming that he won the election to a room full of virus spreading goons down in FL, but this is what we should be concerned about.

I have his book here at my desk.  Friend gave it to me around Thanksgiving.

I can't just throw it away since it's a gift but I haven't been able to read it yet, either.

I've put some operating documents on top of it so I can avoid whatever emotion comes up when I look at it.

/my first trip to Brooklyn as a college kid happened like this 😅

A snake wearing a sweater: He could transfer to the 1 from the A and go to the bronx. The A uptown ends  at 207th st. in Manhattan.


Well, the 1 goes to Riverdale, which is technically the Bronx. But is really Westchester County South.

Big city people are amazingly parochial.

Is this like a "On flight to SFO on my way to Hawaii" thing where he's just on the first leg of his trip?
 
2021-03-01 1:34:04 PM  
There's a shuttle between Grand Central and Penn Station; don't wait until the second stop to exit the train.
 
2021-03-01 1:34:08 PM  
You can be bronx bound on the A.  Transfer to the 123 at 125tth or the 1 at 191, or hop on a bus from dykman, amongst others.

This kind of nonsense doesn't make people seem smart, it makes them seem dumb.  He didn't say the A goes to the bronx, he said HE'S going to the bronx.

This. The A train connects to literally every train that provides service into the Bronx. Let's refrain from calling democrats liars until they rise to the level of the other party, thanks.

Maybe Yang an Elon could both travel to Mars together.

So it's like being on a plane and saying I'm flying to the Bronx and someone saying, that plane doesn't go to the Bronx
 
2021-03-01 1:34:28 PM  
Maybe he's smart enough with the math and has found a way to make the A Train reach the Bronx.

Rav Tokomi: Would you normally take this train from certain places and then transfer to one that goes to Bronx?


Yes. And while the A train doesn't stop in the Bronx, it's not wrong to say "Bronx-bound" to indicate direction of travel.

This is dumb
 
2021-03-01 1:35:21 PM  
Somehow I don't care.
 
2021-03-01 1:35:27 PM  
This is like a Yankees Red Sox thing, isn't it?
 
2021-03-01 1:35:41 PM  
So we've established that nobody riding the A train could ever be headed to the Bronx after getting off of said train. Even though I agree with many of his specific policy proposals this definitely changes things for me.
 
2021-03-01 1:36:19 PM  
why don't we have a link to the actual twitt??

when did a link to someone's response [hich means nothing to me without context] become the 'not news' of our time?

//is subby posting a link to their "clever" twitt reply?

I guess it would have been really funny if he were on the Air Train just circling JFK.

The Bronx is up, and the Battery's down.

Exactly. He didn't say I'm on the Bronx bound A Train

Why is he going to the Bronx?  Most elites like him only go for Yankee games.  Or maybe he is picking up some high-end drugs and cutting out the middleman?
 
2021-03-01 1:42:03 PM  
People are too much.

I was in San Francisco and we were going to take the trolley.  However, the one that pulled up was a New Orleans street car.  In New Orleans most people say street car, some say trolley.

So my buddy says to me "Whoda thunk we would be riding a streetcar from home in the bay".

And this woman says "We call it a trolly here not that southern bastardization."  Literally there is a sign in it that says New Orleans streetcar.

https://www.streetcar.org/streetcars/​9​52-952-new-orleans-desire/

So buddy and I started speaking Spanish to curtail further arguments from Ms. Smarty Pants.

Having a southern accent and being a latino other than a Mexican flipped a lot of wigs.

There is literally no other reason to visit the Bronx.

If you were coming from lower Manhattan/WTC or parts of Brooklyn, yes. But he, or whoever typed the tweet, phrased it poorly. "On my way to the Bronx for X" would have been better.

For the life of me I can't even begin to imagine why anybody would want to live in New York City.
