You know that expression, “only in NYC?” Well, I think this event takes the cake, or should I say turkey!
At around 7 in the evening on Monday night, people boarding the L train leaving Union Square stepped on to find quite a sight.
People had made a full-on table running down the length of one of the cars, and they were having an all-out Thanksgiving feast!
You actually are allowed to legally eat on the subway (just not drink). Although, I’m not sure I would be brave enough to give it a try.
Reddit; pictured above is the Thanksgiving dinner that happened on Monday night
One user on Reddit that was actually on the train had this to say:
It was definitely a bit of a stunt but these guys were really respectful of space – It was a 7 PM Sunday L from union square and was not crowded at all. They said it was an inclusive gesture to emphasize no one should go without food on Thanksgiving.
They were loud but not rowdy or a nuisance. They even handed out plates to everyone in the car – I got one and the turkey was a solid 7/10 and collard 8.5/10. I’m glad I got to experience something like this. Makes a great story!
There were even MTA employees amongst us but no one objected.
Got to love this city!
