Photo by myself at the DeKalb subway station, in Brooklyn.
Stand clear of the closing doors is the recorded mantra you hear all the time on the subway, followed by an electronic ding - dong.
Every time the doors close, subway operators stick their heads out as reliably as groundhogs on Groundhog Dog Day. The operators check that no one and nothing is stuck in the doors, before the train moves on.
The red light to the side of the door shuts off when the door is completely closed. Sometimes people running onto the train and get a hand or bag stuck in the doors. Eek.
Happy Friday, everyone!
