What’s with all the graffiti near and on the trains and why doesn’t the police do anything about it?

Its about time, that was terrible.
I fell asleep on the L 3AM awakening in some hell station about to get mugged by these hoodlum looking inhabitants. I now have to stock a knife and pepper spray to journey on the trains late night or simply avoid them.
I found its good to go to Penn and grab any LIRR to Woodside, then get a cab downstairs. Its only $12-$15 to Metropolitan ave plus your $5.50 off peak fair for the LIRR.
Its better then being dead because the city is getting real bad again, lots of rats, hoodlums and homeless in the subways at night. It reminds me that great classic movie "The Warriors"

HEY ZOE, IT REMINDS ME TO TELL YOU THAT YOU DON'T SLEEP ON THE TRAIN IN NYC AT 3 AM. JUST SAYING, YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER.

I needed a passport to take a trip to London, something I always wanted to do before the place turns to total shit.
Spending 6 hours in lower Manhattan Worth street getting documents to prove I'm an American citizen born in this dam city. A current government stamp seal certified copy of a birth certificate is now required to get passport (and near do anything under Trump)
I then had to work this temp job 6-2AM moving offices (including the computers) and had passed out by accident.

Unfortunate that most of the Myrtle Avenue El was demolished in 1969. It connected Queens to downtown Brooklyn, bypassing Manhattan.

That trip to downtown Brooklyn on the full Myrtle Avenue El was incredible.
The platforms were simplistic, wide open and the views were spectacular, much better then the 7 train. We lived on Dekalb & Myrtle in the 60s, I remember my parents would go shopping for clothing, shoes and stuff and on the way out A&S sold these square three flavor waffle ice cream sandwiches.
I also remember some old restaurant and the automat, I hated the automat because from what I remember you dropped in coins but all you could get was all these soups sandwiches, tuna fish, cheese cakes and other lousy tasting crap (not for kids anyway).
A documentary movie called "The Automat" is coming out, I got my parents and myself in it. Producer Lisa Herwitz, Mel Brooks and the film crew was at the house.

From Metropolitan to Myrtle Broadway, the train runs at a snail's pace.

Slower than before the repairs....
