19 Pictures Of The Most Dangerous Places In New York City Right Now

Less service = more people.

by ,

A week ago, subway service was cut in New York City.

Instead of fewer people on fewer trains, there's been more people on fewer trains. Essential workers still need to pack into the crowded subway cars to get to their jobs to make a living. Here's what some of the trains look like lately:

1.

Please add more subway service! We are all going to get sick! We cannot social distance under these circumstances. @NYCMayor @NYGovCuomo @NYCTSubway @MTA

2.

3.

@nyc311 @NYCMayor @NYCMayorsOffice @MTA @NYPDTransit uptown 4 trains are ridiculously crowded and I can bet they aren’t all essential employees. Do something.

4.

@MTA This was the 6:42 PM A train departing 42nd street heading North. No social distancing enforced and no PPE for your employees.. How is this helping to #FlattenTheCurve protect essential employees.. PROTECT YOUR EMPLOYEES

5. Platforms are crowded.

Everyone’s trying to do social distancing but with transit timing so spaced out (25min for a train 🤨) how could you as the platforms get more crowded? 🤔 @MTA

6.

@baeegif @keeltyc @NYCMayor @NYCParks @Costa4NY I doubt it. I'd wager its that they have a higher portion of working class immigrants that are still working (see subway pic from this week) and more multi-generational households.

7.

@MTA you all need to inform @NYGovCuomo and @NYCMayor these trains are still packed & do not allow for social distancing so they’re aware their stupid order for “essential workers “ only isn’t working. They clearly have no clue! We live here we know! We’re the ones at RISK!

8.

@NYGovCuomo I got this from my Friend today. Brooklyn. Subway M train Monday morning.

9.

@mta why are the trains so crowded at 1030pm?!

10.

@NYCMayor You know what else saves lives ? Prevention, and less crowded subways

11.

What social distancing? @NYCMayorsOffice @NYCMayor @MTA @ABC @CBSNews @cnnbrk @CNN @News12BX @nbc @nycgov @NYGovCuomo

12.

This was my commute to work this morning. The way things are going, I don’t think we’ll be going to normal anytime soon.

13.

@MTA we need more trains. This isn't social distancing. I tried 3 cars. I'm an essential employee required to commute one hour each way, and have not been provided with a mask. We need to do better. It's 8:15pm on uptown 5 train in Manhattan.

14.

Let's go home NYC... SOCIAL DISTANCING IS IMPOSSIBLE ON THIS BRONX BOUND TRAIN!! #4 train #7689 at 7pm @MTA @NYGovCuomo @NYCMayor @NYCTSubway

15.

The uptown number 4 train right now @NYCTSubway what’s your excuse now? First this morning now this afternoon wtf. @NYGovCuomo @NYCMayor @PIX11News @FoxNews @CBSNews @ABC7NY cuomo and de blasio are killing us on purpose. Social distancing my ass. @realDonaldTrump send help ASAP

16.

@MTA how is this for social distancing.... 🤦🏾‍♂️

17.

@nyct @NYCMayor @NYGovCuomo @mta @311 125th street 4 train 6:45am You really want social distancing to work? PUT 👏🏾MORE 👏🏾TRAINS 👏🏾IN 👏🏾SERVICE!

18.

@MTA you all need to inform @NYGovCuomo and @NYCMayor these trains are still packed & do not allow for social distancing so they’re aware their stupid order for “essential workers “ only isn’t working. They clearly have no clue! We live here we know! We’re the ones at RISK!

19.

Hey @MTA @NYCMayor @NYCMayorsOffice @NYGovCuomo Thanks for cancelling all these subways and limiting service. My EMT friend's morning commute today looks like this. Good thing essential workers even have a chance to practice social distancing. @nytimes @nypost @NYDailyNews
