The simple truth about New York

New York is not a poem or a movie set,
a place to escape or let festering frustrations explode
There is an apartheid of attitudes, of neighborhoods and of minds.
Car horns, neighbor’s music and your tv do not sound a perfect harmony. That’s why we plug in our headphones as we live our lives surrounded by the swarm that is also alone.
Do not let these streets haunt your dreams, do not place the center of your happiness at the center of the world. Claim a piece of earth for yourself where you cannot be evicted or shoved out of the way

I saw an elderly gentleman dressed in a fine suit who had a tinge of purple clouding over his greying hair. This poor guy must have not read the instructions on for his Just For Men dye

I was on the G-Train heading north through Brooklyn when the train abruptly stopped just before the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station. The conductor shut down the power of the train, and held us there for about 20 minutes. When we finally pulled into the station, a breathless woman entered my car. “A woman had a seizure and fell on the tracks!” she said, excitedly. “And a train was coming into the station! Luckily the driver noticed and slammed on the brakes.” She pulled out her phone to show just how close the train had come to hitting the woman. 
Supposedly, after the last few incidents, the MTA has been urging its conductors to be hyperaware when entering stations. Looks like a life was saved today by one conductor who took the warning to heart.

Amazing
