Gustav’s Love for the Subway

Former Brooklyn Heights resident and current Berliner Christoph Niemann writes on the New York Times website about his two sons, Arthur and Gustav, and their obsession with the NYC subway system:

New York Times: Niemann Blog: When your child cries in public, it is usually an uncomfortable situation. Once, we needed to get home quickly from Chambers Street, and I told Gustav that we had to take whichever blue train came next. The A train pulled in, and Gustav (who had been hoping for the C) started throwing a fit. However, the other passengers in the car gave me warm smiles. I guess they hadn’t seen that many 3-year-olds sobbing, “Local…I want the local.”
