NYC's Hottest Subway Routes: 36 Saucy Snaps

Unless you've got a driver or a phobia of underground spaces, you've hopped a ride on the subway, and, unless you're asexual, we guarantee there's been a lad or lady that struck your fancy. In NYC, our mass transit experiences are full of snatched glances, sudden crushes, and lots of "what ifs?". Really, it's no wonder that the majority of the Big Apple's Craiglist's "Missed Connections" are train-related. With subway love on our minds, we sent our local confidant and shutterbug Angela Pham out to document the city's hottest routes. "Unfortunately, subways aren't bars," says Pham. "It's virtually impossible to spark conversation with the stunning commuter next to you." But, when Pham took out her camera, only three out of the 80 commuters she asked refused to get snapped. Over the course of three weeks, Pham delved deep below the city's surface, chronicling her journey "I.S.O.H." (her acronym for "In Search Of Hotties"). We've put together a slideshow of our top pics, from up-close candids to unauthorized, cross-platform shots. Click through to peep all 36 snaps, complete with Pham's captions, and the time and the route where the rider was photographed. If you're single, we suggest getting down to business, buying a MetroCard, and staking out your spot now—just in case you want a date for V-Day.
