Taking up two seats.

Leaning on the pole.

Eating food with pungent odors.

Clipping fingernails.

Sex on the subway.

Train riders often encounter some outrageous and odd behavior.

To document some of his own travels, Eddie Going started a website about two years ago called

Other riders send him pictures through Instagram and Twitter and he has become somewhat of an enforcer of the rules of conduct.

    Eddie going is making himself feel better by submitting OTHER’S photos of people on the train. Someone dressed as a fox, while amusing doesn’t really attest any riders rights as you falsely claim. You clearly are bored and insecure Mr. Going. Please go put your talent or lack there of for some magazine. You have issues, you have no allies go away.

      Judy, you must be one of those selfish jerks that spread their purse, shopping bags, and backpack over the expanse of three seats. You probably put your smelly hipster feet up on the seat, and eat artisanal Kim chee out of a Tupperware container. Go back to Ohio, where you can drive yourself to work. Real New Yorkers love Eddie Going.

        Dear Teri,
        No I am not from NY but my nephew is from DUMBO BK and has spoken about the disgusting portrayal of the NYC metro system that this one person has put out there. Regardless he has no right speaking of the masses and publifying photos of people. I hope he gets sued by someone or in reality I hope he gets a life. Who has the time to do this anyway? Unhappy people make a living judging the world. Sorry you’reall so miserable. Ps NYC doesn’t love him because they don’t know him. Don’t flatter yourself or his ego he is a nobody. Macher made a machery out of his own seent using this miserable human being.

        Hi Teri – thanks for checking out the blog and for your support!

        Hi Judy – I’m sorry you’re so upset. Have you ever taken the subway or you’re just going on your nephew’s experience? I do understand where you’re coming from…and without any opposition, my blog wouldn’t be the success that it has become. So, in all honesty, thank you! :) The photos are not editorial…and if anyone wants them taken down, they get taken down. Feel free to e-mail me if you want to continue the conversation. I normally don’t like responding to anonymous posts in public forums.
