Photo by myself at the DeKalb subway station in Brooklyn.
It's Labor Day weekend, which marks the end of summer and beginning of the school year.
The morning commute will not take place on Monday, as most people have the day off. Hooray! Banks and post offices are closed.
As you can imagine, rush hour in New York can be a little too close for comfort. Most New Yorkers wind up standing very close to strangers and no words are exchanged except the occasional 'Sorry' or 'Excuse me' as the train jostles along.
For whatever reason, we also tend to avoid looking at each other. The subway is often much more packed with people than in the photo above.
Happy weekend, everyone!
