Oh sure the above video might make you reach for a cheap #deblasiosnewyork joke or even decry the state of our gross subway cars. But we prefer to take comfort in the scene, and see it as a great equalizer and flattening out of privilege. Black or white, gay or straight, rich, poor or somewhere in between: when the subway rat comes for you, you too will become a quivering screaming mess trying desperately to claw your way out of a speeding metal tube. And isn’t that what New York is really about, when you stop and think?
