New York is is getting ready to remember one year since Sandy came and fucked up all our shit. If you’re thinking of going to one of those candlelight vigils, we suggest a Coney Island or Sheepshead Bay one, because that way you can ride the R train there for free. Seriously, check out this tweet from the MTA.

Either this is actual charity or some MTA official had a brain aneurysm and these are the words that came out on their Twitter account. However this happened, hey, free train rides!
