The MTA is gonna need more of those disinfecting UV lamps …

A raunchy couple took advantage of the practically empty transit system to get freaky on a subway platform, a new video shows.

The nearly minute-long clip, filmed by a chuckling onlooker from across the tracks, appears to show a man and woman in the throes of passion on the platform of the Flushing Avenue station in Brooklyn.
...
“We are proud the subways are as clean as they’ve ever been, but no need to try them out like these geniuses,” MTA spokesman Tim Minton said.

“Glad we announced our ultraviolet disinfecting pilot yesterday because we are going to need it on this platform.”

WHERE'S THE MTA POLICE WHEN YOU NEED THEM?!?!?! 8C

Also there was a viral video recently of a man dumbing cereal on the floor of a subway car since it was part of a trend on an app known as TikTok; the same app which has trends such as the coronavirus trend: licking toilets to get coronavirus, the socket challenge: putting a coin into an electrical socket, licking a bowl of ice cream in a store and then putting it back on the shelf, a new dance move which mocks people with autism, and countless other cringy "challenges" in order to get views and followers on the app which brings you "fame". You can't make this stuff up nowadays. :(

This is not the first time that couples have at it,but are a bit more discrete and are hidden by crowded platforms or in crowded cars.
These challenge s need to be deleted from that "app" Can understand why DOD require "tik toc "is deleted from staffers and military members phones.
This is why I stay far away from social media

One of my least favorite uptown stations has a resident junkie who ahem...services...men in exchange for her heroin fix at the far ends of the platforms. She walks around with a modelling headshot that she alleges is from when she was younger before she became an addict. It's rather sad.

As for where are the cops? Don't get me started about how they're everywhere but where they need to be...and not to nitpick, it's NYPD Transit Bureau. On occasion you might see MTA PD, but that's an exception rather than the rule.

Just the other day I had a lady gesticulating at me from the paid side of the turnstiles. I motioned for her to come out and tell me what was going on. She refused, and then glared at me, presumably for "not doing anything." She did it again, and from her motions it seemed like somebody was stripping on the uptown platform. Again, to no avail, I ask her to come out and talk to me and I would let her back in. Once the train pulled in she got on, and two minutes later this half naked dude with masking tape over one nipple (you can't make this up) comes out from the paid side with his hand down his pants and leaves the station. This was at a station in a fairly affluent neighborhood too.

Still not the strangest thing I've seen on the subway, haha. I love taking friends who've NEVER been in the subway and seeing stuff like this. They freak and I just kinda go "meh".

My father's told me stories of when he was in the Army in the late 70's/early 80's and taking the train to/from Brewster while on leave and being in GCT. He told me that the downstairs bathrooms were basically homeless and drug dens and even the NYPD wouldn't go down there.
