I've taken all of the subway lines and have found the 6 and 7 trains to be the worst.

back in the late 70's i thought the 1 2 and 3 were the meanest and crudest. now the 1 is like the mellowest. today the 2 and 3 are neither here nor there

i always tried back in those days to stick to the F and N trains because of the new widebodies, quieter rides and the atmosphere just seemed less crude and rough. seems pretty much the same today

the A had a pretty lousy reputation but it seems neither here nor there today

the Times Square 1 2 3 N RR QB S and 7 and A AA E stations were a total disgrace back in those days. i would always detour to the Bryant Park station at 6th Avenue which featured cleaner more modern stations. today its all much better.

The ones that are identified by a letter or a number for the most part.

after Renee Katz was pushed onto the tracks and got her hand severed by an oncoming E train at 50th street and 8th Avenue in 1979, i was afraid of that station. 2 years later i went in there with some friends and there was a vagrant on the platform who was ready to cause trouble. totally frightening station. today its like Grand Central Station in there

i really don't think one can really judge the subways today without having lived thru how it REALLY was back in those days.

The C train always seemed dirty and slow.

Seriously, the S is the worst for me. I hate it. Prefer to walk if it does not involve freezing, sweating or getting wet.

All are bad, currently the ABCD on weekends and evenings are beyond ridiculous, but for crowds and rudest people it depends where on a given line.

I always found the 1,2,3 to be the dirtiest and have the highest number of homeless people.
