Is the G train your local subway that you love to hate? Or hate to love? Do you ride it everyday to work, to see a loved one, or out on the town in one (or two) of the “outer” boroughs?
The G train is perhaps the most under appreciated train in the system. It has some of the most unpredictable and slowest service, sketchiest platforms, and rails that refuse to turn westward to the “high society” of Manhattan. Yet, there are still some G train love stories out there. We need it. We rely on it. No matter how bad it gets, the G train is truly a train “FOR THE PEOPLE”. We G-trainers are a breed that truly rely on our beloved and despised line. The G is the quintessential underdog of our transit system. Bringing attention to this too-often neglected line can only make it better!!!
And that is why The City Reliquary, museum-for-the-people, will host a spectacular PAGEANT to crown the first ever “Miss G Train”.
Following in the New York transit history of the “Miss Subways” contests, and corresponding with our current City Reliquary exhibition, Meet Miss Subways – a study of the former Miss Subways past and present by photographer Fiona Gardner, we have been collecting submissions from numerous G train riders who are all vying to become the first ambassador of the last remembered line in the MTA system. Competition to become the first Miss G Train is RIGHT ON TRACK! And, its up to OUR Semi-Finalists to decide just what Miss G Train is! This contest will truly show the diversity of the ridership which uses this line, because we are leaving it to the contestants to define just what being Miss G Train is all about!
We hope to see you there as we crown the first ever Miss G Train on Thursday night!
