Don’t Fence Me In
Written by Bwog Staff
For the past few days, there has been a crudely constructed fence in the 116th street subway station. Confused onlookers don’t know what to make of this barnyard addition to our fair city, and raise their eyebrows in passing. When an amused Bwog politely asked the station attendant why it was there, he seemed annoyed and insulted. Apparently, he’s been getting this question a lot. “It’s not just a gimmick,” he snapped. “It’s there for a reason.”
The reason? A few tiles in that area of the floor are loose, and the MTA deemed the construction of a wooden corral as the most cost-effective way to keep people from walking on them. Maybe they’re out of barricades? Or maybe they just wanted to get back to their country roots—in which case, we’re still waiting for our invitation to the hoedown.
