Photo by myself at the 59th Street subway station.
Two strangers were framed by columns at the 59th Street subway station Tuesday night.
Mark noticed that the fellow above is NJ Burkett, a correspondent for ABC News. The ABC headquarters is a few blocks away from this subway station.

By the way, the latest incident on the subway in the news involves a fight induced by spaghetti (!).
Eating and drinking is not allowed on the subway, though a little snack now and again might be okay. A full-blown meal like spaghetti and sauce is a different story.
Routinely you see women putting on their makeup on the train. Once I saw a man shaving on the subway platform with a battery powered buzzer.
The fight involved three women and eventually half the subway car was standing up. And it was all caught on video.
You can read about and see the argument on the Daily News site here.
