  1. Wow I was thinking about something very similar just last week. I am wondering why no one thought about this one. I'm thinking with today's modern technology it would be very cool to see a nice lit up colored screens in the dark tunnels. I think it would be great advertizment and it would bring in $$ for the MTA. You have plenty of tunnels where the trains don't go that fast and you have facing walls so you can read it. Let make some examples: "TARGET" Mention Special Promo code with this add only when you buy anything at the atlantic avenue store. "Did you know the train stops at the Zoo" etc.. Take this train to the rides at Coney Island. etc... Or some eye catching logos that you don't even need to read. Like Verizon, optimom, dell. Apple., movies, I think the ideas are endless. The tecnology is out there.
  2. Was riding home to Brooklyn on the last night and it was interesting to see a New chasing the from 47-50 to 42 etc.. like the V used to do from station to station. It was an R160 or 142 kinda confused with the 2. it looked pretty clean from the out side, did they wash these cars or are they still putting new ones on the line? Or are these the old M's ? by the way I was pretty mad a few weeks a go, I saw a R142 on the old M lne in Brooklyn with graffiti on the out side that was a real supries.
  3. Instead of destroying all the trains why don't they hall them to zoo's and other atraction areas thru out the city and park them there? where they would be safe at night. If they are afraid for saftey let them keep it chained in. Atlast for people to see how it looks from out side. I'm sure they could find some place in this big city for 2-3 of each so it could be rememberd.?
  4. Honestly I don't think the replys on yahoo are funy I think they are rude. Thats just how I feel. For some one that dose not live in a great city like we do, and have trains that can take them from point A to B they probably dont have a clue that for $2.25 you can enter the system and ride around all day or even live down there. Even if lets say that person come from England, a big city where they have trains, its not one price to every city and station, if you go futher you pay more. And I'm sure you have plenty of young students or even older people that might plan a trip to NYC for summer vacation. Maybe they never saw a subway system in thire life time.? so whats the big deal if some asks if a unlimted pass wil take them around town? I think its a good question.
  5. Hi, I figured this out a few years ago. So I was thinking why not share it with you just in case some one didn't relise. I'm not sure if the coolest seats are exactly in the middle of the subway car, but the end of the Car is for sure not. It can acctualy be very hot at the end of the car. if you look at the cieling in the middle right by the to side next to the advertisments and lights,you will see a long strip of duct, that were the in coming air come in. But that only go's until the last door after that the cieling get's lower and you see a big squre duct. Thats where the return is, the air go's out. So not only don't you not get A/C it pretty warm there. So when I need to get on a crowded train I usaly try to get in the middle door and get in between the seats so I can lift my head to the A/C and when the door opend in the Subway I don't get hit by a heat wave.

  6. Yeah that's right, come to think of it, it needs to announce all the new transfers to the . So they need to do it on every train on every line, plus all the signs in each car on the route layout. I saw the new maps all ready Yesterday in the morning. on the D train. A lot of maps to change out there.
  7. Who runs this site Hopstop.com ? Amazing how they have all the directions with the new trains allready. I put in a request and it gave me a transfer to the new instead of the . Great.
  8. I went in to the Station on 2nd Avenue and I think it was 53rd in Manhatan and they had the sign's on top of the stairs instead of the current . How much is this change over costing them? anyone know?
  9. That's right. And from all the people useing google just one guy from this site had to find it on a Sunday morning .
  10. So I am looking on google for driving directions to some where on my computer, and I decided to look at the pictures of the directons just playing around. You can hit the picture of the little camera next to the directions and see a picture of the location. And funny to see what I happend to see by the entrence to the GWB look What are the chance of finding something like this on google Isn't this amazing? http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=600+Getty+Avenue,+Clifton,+NJ+07011-2161&daddr=Brooklyn,+New+York,+NY&hl=en&geocode=FZTsbwId1oiU-yldlf-hmf7CiTF6jMCEp84MMQ%3BFRBFbAId0JyX-ykJIXyUFkTCiTGGeAAEdFx2gg&gl=us&mra=ls&dirflg=t&sll=40.855695,-73.971376&sspn=0.02811,0.038795&ie=UTF8&ll=40.855695,-73.971376&spn=0.012724,0.038795&z=14&layer=c&cbll=40.855731,-73.971357&panoid=k1iZ7wREDbhQhg7CR1wR9g&cbp=11,128.16,,0,5
  11. I like the R68 and that's the one I happen to ride most. The reason? because of the front facing seats. I wish they would at least build one new train with front facing seats in the future if these trains go to rest. Are the other trains with the brown pannels the same model? they also have front facing seats? is it on the F? And one other thing about all the train cars in general. If you want to feel the A/C when it's turned on. Do not sit on the two ends of the car thats where the return is. And all the air is sucked out I think. The blowers are only in middle of the cars. The long strips right next to the advertisment.
  12. Thanks, it would be nice for me to see. It happens to be the year I was born.
