So next week I am headed to New York City for the first to actually visit and experience it. Of course when telling someone of my journey I get cautions and warnings for just about everything I may encounter - I hope I don't ever have to see this.

A man was killed on a subway train after falling off and on to the tracks. It was later reported by police that the guy fell because he was attempting to dedicate between the two cars, lost his footing, and fell to his death.

It should be noted that he fell off, landed on the adjacent track to only be hit by an oncoming train.

Talk about a crappy way to die, literally. I mean pants down, covered in your own funk, and ran over by a train.

So my question - Ever been to the city? Anything I need to know? Leave a comment.
