How To Be A Proper New Yorker: Tip No.3

Going underground

As we all know
when it works, the subway is the fastest way to go

This travel can be delicate
without some "proper etiquette"

The list of do's and don'ts is long
New Yorkers know what's right, what's wrong

We all agree our trip is eased 
when we're not squeezed, teased or in any other way displeased

 

Staying on top of it 

The most reliable way around town?
Walking! East, west, up and down

Focused, fast and checking our clocks
We're counting the street and avenue blocks

Eyeing the crosswalk countdown to zero
Our coat like the cape of a superhero

Stomping away on the bustling street
Thanking our terrifically trusted feet!
