    I'm aware of social distancing but giving everyone their own car sounds expensive.

    Hi Folks,

    Hah - thanks for the comments - seriously - I was pretty shocked...

    The subway had a few more people but I'd guess about 20% of normal capacity...

    Grand Central Station was pretty empty as well...

    Strange times indeed...

    Regards,
    Scott

    As an ex New Yorker I can't picture Grand Central Station empty.

    Hi Fred,

    Yeah - a bit surreal - but after working adjacent to the WTC though terror attack 1 and 2 - then Sandy - I’m kind of used to it...

    Hi Scott,

    I've been meaning to ask you what is the train in your photo? It's definitely not a subway car. Is it an LIRR or a Metro north? Things have come a long way since I rode a Lo-V Woodlawn-Jerome down to Grand Central in the 1960s. There just happens to be a very good copy of that very train in the file library here.

    Hi Fred,

    Metro North - Harlem Line - from Grand Central to White Plains... Hah - the 60's - don't remember very much - we lived next to LIRR in Floral Park and my Mom said I was absolutely fascinated every time a train went by from first sight - hence - I'm here...

    Same here, lived in Jamaica 1947-1952 by the LIRR. I could watch from my second story bedroom window.
