125 st and Lexington on the 4/5/6 definitely has a lot of weirdos and borderline characters running around, I'm pretty sure some of the transplants that live in the area get a bit worried when they have to catch the train over there lol

They missed:

2nd Avenue on the F train (smells awful, lots of homeless people)
Van Siclen Avenue on the C train (major rat infestation, not safe neighborhood)
Norwood Avenue on the J train (very narrow island platform)
34th Street on the A train (confusing to transfer)

Hmm...each line has it's positives and drawbacks.
For instance, the 6 train is a cluster**** during rush hour, but the trains come every 2 minutes so you will never have to wait for long. But, you will be so packed into the train that if you clench your butt 8 people can feel it.
The C train, you have to wait forever, but it's never crowded.

I would say my favorite is the Q train. I like the new cars and I have never witnessed anything heinous on it.

Speaking of narrow island platforms, the one at 72nd Street on the 1/2/3 is pretty narrow, and it obviously gets much more crowded than Norwood Avenue.

And 34th Street on the 1/2/3 is also the same setup as the A/C/E.

That's intentional, isn't it? You're not supposed to switch between express and local at 34th.

Of the A/C/E, the A has the rudest people and is the most crowded, the C has the nastiest cars, and the E is the nicest. I prefer any of them to the 1/2/3 though.

I have no issues with any of the 1.2.3 trains. 4.5 get way too crowded, A.C.E. is fine too except the cars can be way old

Worst is the JZ line, by an order of magnitude worse than anything else

I like the J/Z line. Trains are newer, but the Manhattan stations are filthy. I do like being above ground in Brooklyn and Queens. Good views and can go on the internet.

Agreed. The Canal street J station is an abomination.

Metta World Peace( AKA Ron Artest) taking the F train to Herald Square on Wednesday for the Knick's
season-opener vs Bucks. I wish the Knicks picked him when he first came out of college.

I'm wondering if that Asian girl actually know who he was or just figure he was some famous people
because poeple were taking pictures of him.
