The Train of Many Colors ran on Friday for the home opener of the New York Mets. It was not the usual 11 car consist one would see on the (7) line, but rather 10 cars. The (7) has run 10 car consists in the past, just not within the last decade. As far as I'm aware, 10 car redbird consists were run during summers.

Its still pretty bad for a tourist to be fanning east of Hewes Street... He would most likely stand out if he were in East NY , or near Jamaica...

Which sections of the system would you say are safe or unsafe to fan?

The slashings are randomly scattered throughout the subway system - the last one was in Noho. It's equally safe/unsafe everywhere.

First off I do not live in NYC. But I've visited there many,many times. In a general sense I've felt comfortable on the subway.

Exactly. Those of you frightened to ride in certain areas read this;

Subway crime up some, but officials say no reason to worry

..and this report from 2014..

Safest and riskiest areas of New York's subway system revealed in Daily News investigation

According to the above article:

Quote:
The city’s safest stations are in Manhattan’s Financial District.

The pair of Wall St. stations — one a stop for the Nos. 2 and 3 trains, the other a Lexington Ave. express stop for the Nos. 4 and 5 trains — posted the lowest crime rates, at 0.04 and 0.08 crimes per 100,000 trips, respectively.

“It’s very peaceful,” said Mohammed Mostafa, who runs a newsstand at the Lexington Ave. line express stop. “It’s a gentle station. This is a working area. Most people come here to do work and then go home.”

Im not talking about Slashings just general crime , East NY , Bed-Stuy , Brownsville , Bushwick , Woodhaven , Richmond Hill are all Dangerous neighborhoods....a place where a tourist should not be walking around or staying in... Your more liking to be a victim of a violent crime in these neighborhoods then say Williamsburg or FIDI or Upper Manhattan , Coney Island...

Even better is this mosaic telling travelers how to get to the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad, aka today’s PATH, which shares an entrance to the station. When was the last time you heard the PATH referred to as the H&M?

MTA to Seek Proposals for MetroCard Replacement

The days of being asked to swipe again and again at the turnstile could soon be ancient history — as the MTA has begun seeking proposals that would move the subway system toward the post-MetroCard era.

The MTA will release paperwork on Wednesday asking companies to submit proposals for ways of paying for rides with contactless media, such as smart cards or mobile devices.

They are hoping that such a new system, similar to payment methods already used in taxi cabs and stores, in which customers only have to swipe their phones, will make MetroCards as obsolete at subway tokens.

These talks have been going on for years now. They should have gone contact-less years ago. Which doesn't mean they could have done so.

The station anchors the new Hudson Boulevard, which will connect the High Line to the south with the 42nd Street area to the north.

It's to the point where you are much more likely to see a Johnson-era train than a Y2K train.
