re: public transit

For those of you that don't have your GPS readers tracking my every move, I should tell you that I am in New York City for the week.

One of the first things I did upon arriving was to meet up with a few new yorkers in Brooklyn Heights at the New York Transit Museum. In all my New York travels I had never even heard of this place, and it was so cool. It is a museum all about the history of the subway, and better yet, it is located inside a historic 1936 subway station with old historic faregates and trains and all sorts of other neat things to poke and sit on.




Here is the thing - I don't even hardly want to blog about the museum because brigham took such better photos than I did and will probably have much more interesting things to say about the experience once he gets around to blogging about it.

But there are a few pictures that he doesn't have that I feel pretty okay sharing. I don't know if it is the ridiculous NYC heat or if Brigham always acts this way when there is a pole in the room, but the historic train cars got a bit of a show.



(And then he walked away as if he were all confused about what had just happened.)

Not to be upstaged, Collin did a little transit gymnastics himself.



Please never let anyone tell you that public transit is not a fun and sexy time.

I am only sad that you didn't not show us some of your transit moves-- though taking sneaky pix of people on public transit may well be one of your best.

Cindy said...

YES! I loved them! So much! Remember the guy who tried to teach us about the Garden of Eden the last time we were on public transit together? He was awesome. I wish I was there with you!

The moving picture of Brigham has me transfixed.

You have to teach me how you did that animated Brigham crap. Fantastic!

EVERYONE was in NY that week. Well, everyone but you, Paul.

Marsha. I didn't mean to keep this from you. You pretty much own the internet and I just figured that you knew.
