Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Travel on Monday 19 January 2015

For those who are unlucky enough to have ridden the New York City subway, you’ll probably remember a few things about your ride. First, there was probably some woman applying mascara in your car.

How you doin’?’ from the bored man in a lawn chair sitting near his favorite bodega.
