What’s Your Turnstile Style?


These photos by Bill Sullivan of straphangers at the moment they pass through the subway turnstile are not new, but they are great, and seeing them on Buzzfeed today got us thinking about different turnstile styles. Personally, we typically lead with the front of the thigh, but some people turn a little and use the side of the thigh. Others just use their hand, despite the germ factor, but then again, germs are everywhere. Our philosophy is touch everything, and eventually your immune system will become unbreakable, like Bruce Willis in that movie, Die Hard.
