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.
How about when you come into 34th and eighth at 12:30 AM and the sign says that all downtown trains will stop at the express track so you go down one flight of stairs, go across then up another flight of stairs and then you see the train coming into the station by the local track?

Forgot to mention the 7 its up there but generally speaking its the 4,5,6 and L along with the 7 what helps the 7 a little is that during the rush it runs about every 90 seconds or so.

i remember when i served jury duty 4 years ago i accidentally bumped into a guy when we had to transfer at Burnside Ave. The guy was pissed, I apologized and he accepted

if i had to guess i would tend to think that lines that go to and from the poorer areas have passengers(those who live in these areas and are commuting) who are perhaps more irritable.

I usually take the 4 to and from work (from Mosholu Pkwy to Union Square) though I could also take the D at the 204th St stop if anything happens to the 4 line. I get out of work around 11pm and its amazing how packed the 4 train is even at that time. I rarely get a seat and the crowd usually lessens once the train gets passed Yankee Stadium though many get off around Burnside and Fordham. If there is one good thing about that crowded line is how clean it generally is and my rides are usually free of panhandlers.


Now the D...thats another story. The AC isn't as good (older cars) and there are TONS of panhandlers, breakdancers (ITS SHOWTIME!!!), mariachi bands (who are actually pretty good), the chinese guy selling batteries and dvd's and the "M&M PEANUT FOR 1 DOLLAR...WELCH'S FRUIT SNACKS TWO FOR A DOLLAR!" kids. I try to avoid the D.

4,5 train from grand central to Whitehall during rush hour is like standing in a sardine box. I hated it.

When I lived in Brooklyn and had to the N from 20th avenue there were always old asian ladies that would bullrush anyone as soon as the doors opened to get a seat. It was funny most of the times, but when they almost ran over a pregnant lady to get on the train I wanted to kill them. Nothing against asian people LOL but the people who did this always happened to be asian what can I do? not tell the story?

Now, I get to walk to work so I don't worry about public transit

Does anyone know why there are always signs telling you when the 1,2,3 trains are running, but hardly any for the other trains? It sucks balls waiting around wondering when the A train will decide to show up.

I don't know if I responded in this thread earlier but I nominate the A. I use to take that train al the time back when I lived in Ozone Park and almost every week I saw a fight.

A train to and from Ozone park sounds like its own special type of hell.
