Full of useful advice like, “Beware the empty train car. It’s empty for a reason,” do’s and don’ts such as, “Stand on the right, walk on the left,” and sage realisms like, “The most beautiful person you’ll ever see will be across the platform on an express train whose doors have just closed,” NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette by Nathan W. Pyle is equal parts funny and informative. And while great for a laugh, we’re seriously considering a Kickstarter campaign to get copies of this handy guide distributed city-wide…or at least in JFK.
