Gothamist offers a recap of the annual state of the subways report from the Straphangers association.
Why am I so not surprised to learn that the F was voted the dirtiest? Everyday I marvel at the strange subway river of dirty water that is constantly flowing through the middle of the subway tracks at the York St stop. The best was once I was on the subway and out of the corner of my eye I saw a cockroach walking downward toward this lady's head. I quickly grabbed her arm and pulled her away. I am sure there are many more that aren't visible... eeeeek.
Can they also vote on worst exit? I think it would have to be the F at 63rd street and Lex, or the York St stop, based on the combo of uphill walking and stairs. I guess it's good exercise, right!
And while the M & W ranked worst on frequency of service, and the 5 ranked worst for regularity of service, I was surprised that the F did not receive an honorable mention for worst weekend service? I cannot count how many times my friends have had to take cabs to Brooklyn because the F wasn't running on a weekend.
What do you think?
