One of the major things that keeps New York City moving is its subway. The city’s public transportation system is crucial to its everyday’s life and it is the greatest asset in helping people to circulate and commute in the city. Waiting for the train, struggling to find a seat, and encountering subway performers while being in a place with complete strangers, is all part of the subway experience. Certainly there is nothing like it, even though some New Yorkers pretend it is possibly the worst thing on earth, they surely know that they wouldn’t survive without it.
Humans of Cuny comes back, featuring a New York City College of Technology student, talking about his experience taking the subway.
The wondrous sunset vividly animating the sky, awarded the commuters below with a beautiful sight while patiently waiting for the arrival of the train.
And suddenly arriving, is the very much anticipated train skating over the electric railway, to gather its new passengers for the long journey ahead to the underground.
This subway car is the chosen one for the journey; it’s so vast it seems as it stretches deeper than the eye can see. Nevertheless, in seconds it will be bombarded with passengers fighting for a place of their own in order to take part in this new adventure.
Now trapped to another world; a world with strangers, but certainly greatly animated by subway performers. Whether they dance, sing or do magic tricks, they can certainly make the journey enjoyable until the final destination is reached.
