15 NYC Subway Moments When You Know You Have A Guardian Angel

As New Yorkers the subway is as unavoidable as paying taxes, and like paying taxes, we love to complain about it.

…but hidden somewhere in the long delays, endless construction, crowds, and the dread when you hear the words “it’s showtime,” there are minor subway miracles. Those little moments when you know that someone out there is looking out for you:

1. When the train pulls up full… but 90% of the people get off and there’s even a seat for you.
