The Worst Fucking Transit System In The Universe
On Monday morning, a track fire ignited in the A train express tunnel by the 145th street station in Harlem, leading to a mass evacuation causing a shutdown of 4 lines which led to a massive overcrowding on the 1 train blocks away on Broadway for it was the only line accessible for transit service.

It was revealed that the previous day that the car was faulty when it was operated at a railyard in Coney Island.
