Welcome to New York City, where people are now chaining themselves to light poles because they're so scared of being shoved into the path of oncoming subway trains 😬

Nov 23rd

New York City is often hailed as "the greatest city in the world." But what does great mean, really? Does it mean chaining yourself to an iron rod so that you won't be pushed into the path of a speeding locomotive?

If so, I guess it all checks out!

New York "drags itself awake on subway straps," Maya Angelou once wrote.

Now the city apparently straps itself asleep on subway drags.

All part of the modern magic of that wonderful metropolis!
