Gothamist video editor Jeff Seal recently went out to capture some horrible New York City subway etiquette in action. Watch this video to see why you should never block the subway doors, and see the oblivious New Yorkers who commit this subway etiquette crime.
Now, we understand that leaning on the subway doors can be a preferred position on the train car, but if you want to stand there it comes with responsibility. The responsibility to get the hell out of the way when people are having trouble getting on and off the train. Sometimes this just means shifting your body so your back isn't facing the open door for a moment. Sometimes this means briefly getting off the train. And sometimes this means trying to move further in to the train car, giving up your precious door spot.
