    Best to Worst: 6 1&9 7 4 E J&Z L 5 Q 2 3 V F A D R M B W C N

    DATA: Straphangers just released their latest NYC Subway reportcard. I guess I've got a good mix with my commute using the R or the V (two of the shitty lines) and sometimes the N or the W (even worse), however I always transfer to the 6 at 59th Street or 51st Street, which gives me a taste of the good life every morn' on the city's best train.

    Gothamist has a good conspiracy theory:

    N riders aren't surprised their line sucks; Gothamist likes how one person the Post interviewed was "sweating profusely" as he waited for a train, because we've noticed that many N stations (Times Square, Herald Square, Union Square) are like saunas. If Gothamist were a conspiracy buff, we'd say the 6 is the best line because Mayor Bloomberg usually takes it from his townhouse, but we're not anything like that. But perhaps we'll change our nickname for the N from the "Never" to the "Nasty" train.
