There is nothing worse than riding the subway during rush hour, where you’re crammed in the subway cart like a sardine and getting a seat is a game of chance. I did that for many years and the only way I’d be able to peacefully get through it, was to tune out to some of my favorite music. It was usually something to get me amped and motivated for the day: Beyonce, Jay Z, JT, or some sort of hip hop.
These days, I’m lucky enough to make my own hours (avoiding the rush hour commute), so riding the subway has become something I don’t mind at all. I still listen to my music and I love using the time to catch up on emails or to read a book. I have to say, I’m pretty grateful for NYC’s transportation system, especially since its been by main mode of getting around since I’ve been a teenager.
Fun Fact: New York City has, by far, the highest rate of public transportation use out of any American city and is the largest subway system in the world when measured by track mileage.
And there’s your trivia for the day!
