File to: New York City Public Transportation Is an Ever-Growing Hellscape. On Wednesday morning, 6 train service was suspended after a water-main break flooded a station near East 143rd Street. Trains in both directions remained out of commission for three hours, before resuming service with delays, NBC New York reports. Fortunately, one unlucky straphanger was able to capture the incident on camera. Turn the sound on for the lovely sounds of a passenger comforting another passenger, “It’s okay, you’re not gonna die.” Just what you want to hear on your daily commute.
A fun thing about the MTA continuing to fail is that your options for playing Would You Rather are growing almost daily. Would you rather be stuck on a 6 train while gross brown water pours into the tunnel around you, or would you rather be trapped on this stalled F train without lights or air conditioning for an hour.
