Cities are packed, jammed, polluted, and tough to move around in. It doesn’t matter whether you live there, work there, or just visit. Getting around the city can be hard work, uncomfortable, and even thoroughly unpleasant. But what turns you off about the city might not bother the guy sat next to you. Perhaps you don’t like the bus because the noise of shrieking kids on the school run gives you a headache? Or maybe you just don’t like the smell of the subway? Does the mode of transport you choose say anything about your personality or outlook on life though?
There’s no denying that New York is one of the most populated and frequented cities in the whole of the United States. It’s a cultural melting point, and it’s a lively and cosmopolitan city where you’ll come across all kinds of weird and wonderful people on your travels!

Well today is the first of what could be a series of some of the fun things I see and hear on my way to work riding the 7 train.
