I hate crowds. It is why I avoid taking the R train from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM in the morning and 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM in the evening. The trains are overcrowded, especially in the winter with people and their enormous coats and bags. However that is the usual grind and I've timed myself out of it.
I wouldn't be me if I didn't find something to complain about. I've been meaning to call the MTA about this for a while but I never seem to remember to do it. At Prospect Avenue, going towards Bay Ridge, there is only one exit. It is so annoying that most people who get off at this spot (myself included) have to strategically place themselves between the 3rd or 4th subway car to get out right in front of turnstile. Otherwise, one can imagine waiting and moving slowly in line for 3-4 minutes. It seems like a silly thing to gripe about however isn't it against some law (or a fire hazard) to only have one exit in a heavily populated neighborhood where majority of the people ride the subway? The other side of the station has 2 exits. So MTA, BUILD A NEW EXIT AT PROSPECT AVENUE PLEASE!
I'll be adding pictures and commentary of the things I love. I am an ordinary person in an extraordinary place. There is no special purpose to this blog other than to project what I am thinking of at any given moment.
