NYC Subway Riders Sing Backstreet Boys

I lived in NYC for almost a decade and I often find myself missing little things that are hard to explain to people who’ve never lived there. Things like turning on the fire hydrant and playing in the water on a hot day, sitting on brownstone steps and watching kids play double dutch, playing checkers in the park.

THIS video? THIS is one of those things I miss so much. At any point in time, you could be having the worst day, and then something like this happens, on a random subway car. NYers always get a bad rap about being mean or rude. To that, I usually respond by saying, “They’re just in a hurry and you’re in the way.” (Which is usually true!) But things like this remind me of why NYC will always be the best place in the world.

Enjoy! ~ @danitaonnash
