    LIRR recently changed their usual “Watch the Gap” announcements to “Step Over the Gap.” Maybe the new paint is just general MTA cya going a bit overboard.

    I have a coworker that went into a diabetic shock a while back. He just said he wasn’t feeling good and wandered off. It was a pretty scary couple of hours trying to find him. Eventually he was found a few floors up, slumped over in a corner.

    The LIRR has pretty muched covered all their platforms with Watch the Gap — at least one for every car-length of platform. They have also programmed the M-7’s to make an announcement after “this is the train to; the next station is” and “this station is” that says please “step over the gap between the train and the platform.” Apparently “watch the gap” (the old message) didn’t sufficiently insult the average person’s intelligence.
    And thanks for that story…I think we’ve all been guilty at one time or another of making a quick assessment of another person as you say, upon seeing only a slice of their life.

    Beacon on the Hudson Line was also done back in May along with the rest of MN system it seems.

    “As you leave the train please watch the gap between the train and the platform.” After a while, I love the fact it gets stuck in your head. Personally, I think the MTA should just use the stickers you made for them.

    It is probably Banksy ;-)
