Photo by myself in Midtown, at 34th Street and Sixth Avenue.
Just outside the subway entrance, people are prone to make last-minute calls before jumping on the train. More than a few people were talking or texting there, Monday night.
The trouble is, standing in front of the stair means blocking half the space. This is most obvious when train-loads of people are climbing up to the sidewalk.
