New York Subway Riders Are Now Risking Death To Escape Delayed Trains

The interior of the subway I rode Tuesday in New York City was wallpapered to resemble a library, with images of shelves stocked with leather-bound volumes providing a mostly aspirational backdrop to a row of sweaty, frustrated riders. The city rolled out cellular and wireless Internet service to all of its stations this year; the fancy wallpaper on the E train celebrates an initiative through which riders are able to access free chapters of books. It seems New Yorkers would rather use the cell-phone service to complain about the deplorable state of public transportation.
