Any word on the fate of the misplaced basketball?

Birthday wishes

Happy 60th birthday to Grant Avenue station on the train.

This station opened on 1956.04.29. It is one of numerous superlatives, including being the easternmost, youngest and ugliest subway station in the borough of Brooklyn.

Surge in Ridership Pushes New York Subway to Limit

By EMMA G. FITZSIMMONSMAY 3, 2016


Riders waiting for the L train on a packed subway platform at Union Square in Manhattan last month.

Subway use, now at nearly 1.8 billion rides a year, has not been this high in New York City since 1948. Credit Sam Hodgson for The New York Times For New Yorkers who rely on the 86th Street subway station on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the morning commute is a humbling experience. An endless stream of people funnel onto the platforms. Trains arrive with a wall of humanity already blocking the doorways.
As No. 6 trains pull into the upper level of the station, riders scan for an opening and, if they can, squeeze in for a suffocating ride downtown.
“You can wait four or five subways to get on, and you’re just smushed,” Cynthia Hallenbeck, the chief financial officer at a nonprofit, said before boarding a train on a recent morning.
The Lexington Avenue line is the most crowded in the system, but subway riders across New York City are finding themselves on platforms and trains that are beyond crowded. L train stations in Brooklyn are routinely overwhelmed. In Queens, No. 7 train riders regularly endure packed conditions.
Subway use, now at nearly 1.8 billion rides a year, has not been this high since 1948, when the fare was a nickel and the Dodgers were still almost a decade away from leaving Brooklyn. Today, train delays are rising, and even a hiccup like a sick passenger or a signal malfunction can inundate stations with passengers.

Harmless gas released in New York subway for security test
Excerpt

NEW YORK, May 9 (Reuters) - U.S. authorities on Monday sent a harmless gas wafting through the New York subway to study how to deal with a toxic accident or attack in a test that both unsettled and reassured riders on the underground system.

A mix of odorless, inert gases and tracer materials were released in three of the busiest subway stations in the city: Grand Central Terminal, Times Square and Penn Station, U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials said.

Men and women in orange vests let off the gas inside areas cordoned off with yellow "caution" tape as commuters walked by and police stood guard.

With equipment set up at another 55 subway stations around Manhattan, researchers will take air samples every four hours to see how the gas spreads. They will repeat the process throughout the work week, the department said in a statement.

The test is part of a five-year program that began in 2012 to develop methods to protect urban transit systems in the event of an attack or accidental contamination. Previous tests were conducted in New York, Washington, D.C. and Boston.

"These tests are designed to gather data about how airborne material will travel through subway systems and the trains and how quickly they will move," said John Verrico, a spokesman for the department's Science and Technology Directorate, which sponsored the test along with the Office of Health Affairs.

I seem to recall that they already did tests of this sort 50 years ago testing for nuclear and chemical attacks. I also seem to recall that they screwed those up somehow.

-- And at lunchtime, visitors to a nearby greasy spoon ate some bad chili and released some very 'toxic' gas of their own!
