Most favourite underground comment; “Your singing gave me goosbumps” Today was a multiple goospimply day¬†
People kept stopping by bearing random gifts today Underground. First it was a Box of Girl Scout Cookies, then some kinda fancy-schmanzy shampoo & conditioner (at least the lady who dropped it in my case said it was). By the end of my day I kinda felt like the baby Jesus & the three wise men¬†¬†#newyorkundergroundlove
Ok no, seriously? Again? So tell me NYC…which trains AREN’T infested????¬†
A tipster has revealed to Business Insider that¬†a third train line in the New York City subway has potentially been infested with bedbugs. The first subway line to get fumigated‚ÄĒthe N train‚ÄĒwasfollowed by the 5 train, and now the pests have reportedly taken to feeding on passengers on the 7.
After riding the 7, the tipster told Business Insider:¬†“I am a regular 7 line rider in New York. I take the line every morning from Woodside to Bryant Park. This morning, I noticed them coming out from under the seat to feed on people’s legs.”
The tipster, Kedem Deletis, said he called MTA officials on a help line after seeing the bugs, instead of starting a panic among other passengers.
“What exactly should I have done? Raised a panic on the train and have people screaming and hurt?” Deletis asked. “Maybe captured one of these bedbugs and risk bringing one home?”
Deletis said he was certain the insect he saw was a bedbug because he had an infestation in his building “about four years ago” and “that nightmare experience made every resident an expert.”
MTA officials say they are looking into Deletis’ bedbug observation. A friend of a Gawker staff writer simply advises to not sit on the wooden seats on the platform, because the disgusting pests breed there. But maybe, for now, just¬†don’t take the subway at all.
“If you’re a regular commuter or tourist (OR BUSKER – my addition) in New York City, here’s some exciting news: Earlier this week, MTA officials discovered that¬†three N trains were infested¬†with bedbugs.
The¬†New York Daily News¬†reports that two of the trains were taken out of service while a third was sent for fumigation.
“When we found them, we exterminated them,” Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman Adam Lisberg¬†told¬†the¬†Daily News. At least some of the bugs were found in the cabs used by the trains’ motorman and conductors; it’s not clear if any were discovered in the passenger area.”
