MANHATTAN (PIX11) — New Yorkers have seen it all, and, more than likely, they’ve seen it all on the subway.

A man was photographed butt naked on the E train Thursday around 8:30 p.m., taking sips of out of a jug of Jack Daniel’s between snoozing in a train car with at least 30 other people, the New York Post reported.

The photographer, Peter Davis, is an editor at the Daily Front Row Fashion and told the Post that the man in the buff was on the train for at least six stops–from Fifth Avenue and 53rd Street to 23rd Street.

“There were a lot of blasé New Yorkers that looked — and then looked back at their iPhone as if he wasn’t even there,” Davis told the Post. He also noted that he didn’t appear homeless because he didn’t smell and had a fresh haircut.

Instagram user @melanielazenby posted a picture of the naked subway rider next to a picture of another naked man on a park bench “a few weeks” ago, claiming that it seems to be the same man.
