Waiting for the subway has historically been and mostly still is an adventure in time management, patience and ability to tolerate proximity of people who are not that into hygiene.
Up until recently, we didn’t have any of those fancy warning signs often seen in other cities that also feature stations that don’t overwhelmingly reek of urine and despair. The suckitude of not knowing whether you’re going to spend the next 40 seconds or 40 minutes on a sweltering F train platform standing next to an agitated schizophrenic dude and a pushy battery vendor is part of the daily excitement of living or working within the five boroughs of New York City.
If you find your underground commute to be jarring and dissonant compared browsing your favorite internet forums, you’ll be pleased to know that someone has decided to courteously mark the signs denoting wait times with a spoiler alert. The signage is in line with most MTA Subway signs and doesn’t really look all that out of place.
