What’s it like to commute on an NYC subway during rush hour?

NYC Subway

Well, it can be simple for some, but many of the lines get so crowded that the best term I can come up with is a “hot mess.” I am actually one of the lucky ones. I do not HAVE to get to an office at a certain time. But so many of my friends do. And if you have to take the 4,5,6 during rush hour. Well, I am sorry. I owe you a hug, so does Manhattan.

Saw this series of tweets this morning from @MarkB and knew they had to be shared. This comes pretty damn close to explaining the experience. But until you get smashed up against your fellow New Yorkers for 20-30 minutes, I really must say, you probably are not going to fully grasp this wonderful experience. Still, worth a read.
