When an article popped up about the sexiest subway stops in New York City NYPost Story On Subway Stops it’s pretty obvious a question needs to be asked about what the definition is of ‘sexy’ is when it comes to subway stops. It’s seems that for some people, as per this article, sexiness of a subway stop is defined by the number of gorgeous people who frequent any one stop. So ‘sexy’ stations by this definition are the ones close to nightclubs, close to the beaches frequented by surfer dudes, close to clubs that hot actors frequent, ones close to modelling agencies and of course ones close to gymns with all those gleaming, well muscled guys and gals.
Yes sexy subway spots are the ones close to everything trendy, like startups and sports palaces where sports stars hang out. So we can sum it all up by pointing to the beautiful people and say everywhere they go on the subway defines the sexiness of the subway stop?
But surely there’s another defintition of sexy which can be applied to subway stops. Any stop which gives us a punch in the gut, a shiver of excitement and a tingle of anticipation all qualify as sex surely. One station that would have to qualify on all those criteria is the 81st station seen in the video. It’s the stop for the Museum of Natural History. Those glorious big black and white tiled signs, the ring tailed possum, the fossil bones, the many other animals pictures in mosaics and the huge elephant that haunt the walls of the station all give us a brilliant moment and a clutch in the heart.
Then there’s all the stations with fabulous tile work that instantly transport us back to the 1920′s. Such as the old ghostly and mysterious City Hall Station, all the stations with strange entrances that are unexpected and beautiful and of course Grand Central, a station that catapualts you into the wonderland that travel once was in a distant past. Travel that was luxurious and priveleged and adventuruous, something you undertook not something you endured. Yes all those stations are definitely sexy, shivery and exciting even when there is not one gym toned body in sight.
