Never miss the subway ‘til the plague says NO GO

Gosh, a couple of months in, and these bits of our aural landscape land as if from another world! Once we’re free to move about the city again I may ride for 24 hours straight, just to make up for lost time...

Best App ever

Only enhancement that would make this better is if I could download as ringtones too.

Definitely bought a smile to my face.

5-Star app all the way!

Oh trust me if I could add that ability I would! Unfortunately there’s no API for that 😞

A little disappointed...

Most of the sounds are crystal clear. I was expecting mist to be either garbled through heavy accents or nearly indecipherable from the noise and decades old PA system speakers. But fun idea - sent it a home sick New Yorker friend.
