Once upon a time our subways were covered in graffiti - some of it amazing art - most of it douchebag posturing so finally the city made it so NO ONE could ever tag, throw-up or blaze a burner on their trains again with special metal coatings. Some good things were lost but the trains do look better without all that toy, "I'm the king of" this or that line bullshit going on.
So where is this going? Advertising - we have some advertising on our trains but here's the deal - they want to raise our fairs AND cut services in NYC - fuck it wrap the trains, the platforms, the poles and the tracks in ads! If it raises revenues they should put MTA employees in Ronald fucking McDonald suits - I am not joking.
