If you've ever been on the NYC subway during rush hour, then you're familiar with all of the horrors associated with it.
From delays, to broken down trains, to failed AC units, to urine sopped corners you only discover upon stepping into a suspiciously empty car, finding a train that isn't jam-packed with too many people to fit when you're just trying to get home is a miracle sometimes.
And to make matters worse, you aren't allowed to bring your pet on the train, either. Now, those other problems are a little out of one's control, but when it comes to smuggling pets into places where they aren't allowed, if you're creative, you can get it done. And if there's one thing New Yorkers are, it's creative. I mean, how the heck else are you going to mentally survive spending $2,300 on a studio with a matchbox for a bathroom?
The rule states:
"No person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container."

My dog has gotten so heavy that when I carry him on the subway in his tote bag I start pouring sweat 😓😓 and people offer their seats to me— Tom Stern (@SquirrelTalkTom) December 14, 2016
Carrying a dog in a bag w just its head poking out on the NY subway has very quickly risen to the high end of my bucket list— Bored Hag (@PowerfulUggo) December 14, 2016
Plus, the rule, as annoying as it may be, has ultimately yielded some adorably hilarious pictures, so there's that.
