From the Department of Questionable Milestones comes the news that Subway — the international chain of sandwich shops mostly known for trying to pass off limp bags of soggy precooked steak as the fillings of a Philly Cheese from Brooklyn to Dubai — is outpacing the New York MTA. In Manhattan, there are now more Subway shops than subway stops.
Apparently, the only hope the MTA has to catch up is to speed up completion of the Second Avenue subway, which isn’t expected to be completed for another decade. Valuable time lost for the already buckling MTA as their identity is stolen right out from under their noses by a company best known for making some of the worst hoagies on Earth.
