Just what I needed

As someone who moved away from the city two years ago, it was hard trying to find time to come back. Then Covid happened, and revisiting the city again became even less likely. You never know how comforting/nostalgic some of these sounds are until you really haven’t heard them for almost a year!

App is Good, it just needs more Sounds

This app is great, especially in a time where most of us are stuck in the house. I think the app needs more sounds and Variations, Maybe a Sound for the train Leaving the station and more station announcements.

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...
