SUBWAY TAKES A SNOOZE: For First Time in History, NYC Subways Will Shut Each Night to Disinfect, Clean Trains

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.01.20

For the first time since the opening of the New York City subway system in 1904, trains will stop each evening to allow sanitation workers and police to disinfect the trains during the deadly Coronavirus pandemic.

“New York’s 24/7 subway system will shutter nightly from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. to facilitate coronavirus cleaning, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday in a historic move,” reports the New York Post.

“You never had a challenge of disinfecting every train every 24 hours,” said Cuomo in Albany. “It can best be done by stopping train service from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. every night.”

MTA Subway conductors sounded the alarm over the dismal conditions of the New York City transportation system Thursday; saying the trains are “filthier than ever” from an “astronomical amount of homes people.”

“There is an astronomical amount of homeless people now in the subway,” MTA train conductor Tramell Thompson said. “The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is now the Metropolitan Transmission Authority. They are transporting this virus.”

“The trash, the feces, the urine, is there. It’s just a very toxic, unsafe environment,” Thompson said.

“Because we have less trains to work with, the homeless in the system congregate on fewer trains, so it’s way more evident now than it’s ever been,” an anonymous conductor told CBS2’s Ali Bauman. “It’s causing a hazard to MTA employees and the people that we have to transport during this time.”

“We’ll get a call from someone on the train. They’ll press the passenger intercom and one of them is urinating in the cars,” the anonymous conductor said. “And because we have so few trains, we have to ride back and forth.”

CODE RED: New Yorkers Disturbed by Empire State Building's ‘Siren Display’ During Pandemic

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.31.20

Millions of New Yorkers struggled to understand Mayor Bill de Blasio’s “Code Red” lighting configuration on the Empire State Building this week; saying the frightening sight only caused further distress during the Coronavirus pandemic.

De Blasio warned residents Monday the NYPD will begin removing passengers from crowded Subway cars should the trains violate the state’s rules and regulations regarding the Coronavirus pandemic.

“The PD is going to go out there, if they see any overcrowding, they’re going to literally split it up, pull people off the train, move them along into different cars, whatever it takes,” de Blasio said Monday in an interview with NY1. “This is literally about protecting people’s lives.”

“That’s not acceptable. I understand people are trying to get somewhere, but nobody should be getting on a crowded train,” de Blasio said.

De Blasio told reporters violating the city’s social-distancing guidelines could carry a fine of $500.
