Where is the R train?
We’ve often wondered the very same thing while waiting patiently at 59th Street for an R train to arrive after waiting for 20 to 30 minutes. We predict that the 59th Street station of the N/R at 4th Avenue will be the very last station to receive countdown clocks because the wait time is just too embarrassing for the MTA to show.
We know that this construction project on the corner of Spring and Mulberry is years, maybe even decades in the making.
But that corner lot will always be known to us as a good place for junkies to pee in, because that’s what we used to see going on it in when it was a parking lot. Now a different set of junkies will eventually move in and they will get to pee in it. America!
To ride the subway in Spanish, press SAP.
We found this piece up on 190 Bowery and it asks if it is (Arab) spring yet?
Also of note, we didn’t notice it until we formatted the photo, but there is part of the late Army of One atop of it.
