15 Photos That Show the NYC Subway System Is a Total Nightmare These Days

Share on Facebook

While normally the conditions and closures of the New York City subway system are only the topics of conversation for locals, things have gotten really bad really fast for commuters in all five boroughs. Things are terrible and clearly getting worse.

Power outages and delays are causing the city to shut down slowly, and residents are suffering in ways you’ll be shocked to learn.

Now think of one with no A/C, crowded during rush hour…in summer.

But the failing quality of the cars and tracks are leading to more and more issues causing injury. How many more have to get hurt before drastic steps are taken?

Delays and outages are affecting workers, parents, and employers equally.

It’s not a horror movie campout…it’s a ride home!

I guess that’s the power of claustrophobia!

While people suffer panic attacks around you? That sounds like…a bad time.

…but how many people want to be called brave on their ride to or from work?

The steam. The cries for help. The stuck door. This is not how New Yorkers should be treated by their city.

It doesn’t bode well for the condition of the stuff you can’t see.

But aren’t something you want to see on a train.

But this isn’t a good look for a public area in any city.

Most ways have a lot more carnage involved.

This is more a function of the people than the infrastructure, but…still.

Maybe the city is just re-allocating the funds to “entertainment” like this.

The stress of jockeying for position is just too much to even imagine! Now think about doing it every day. *head explodes*
