An homage to the occasionally moments-too-late New York subway commuter by Jessica Leibowitz. To wit:

There is no quintessential NYC experience quite like running down a subway station platform with your arms flapping all about like a distressed penguin, making eye contact with the conductor, and then hesitantly stretching out your hand to try to slip between the doors before they close.

    Martin Scorsese would have died for footage like this. We are truly living in the golden age of New York.

    Best way to get around Manhattan when on your hols. Well best way to go up and down Manhattan.
