A subway story.

Although I don't love the NYC Subway system all of the time (or most of the time as it is recently I have had a string of bad luck waiting for trains for many moons while they fix "signals" or whatever it is that makes me wait in the steamy underground of Manhattan) I do love funny stories written about the subway; especially when it involves simple illustrations. The NY Times has an adorable story about a father (the writer and illustrator, Christoph Niemann) and his two young sons who actually lead their Dad around the city subway system as if they have been riding for years and years. Now if only the MTA handed out entertaining stories like this one while I was waiting in the humid depths of the city for my train...
