A veteran subway operator said she witnessed a homeless man openly defecating on a No. 2 train Monday a sign the homeless have taken over the subway system during the coronavirus pandemic.
Angelina Malave, 46, who missed a month of work after catching the virus, said the sight of the man kicked back on a subway bench with his legs raised in the air over his head so his full rear end was in view was one of the worst things Ive seen in my 18 years as a train operator.
Malave said she snapped a photo of the distressing scene, which later circulated on Twitter and on worker Facebook groups, at the Flatbush Avenue 2 train terminal around 10 a.m.
The 5-foot-tall train operator said shes too scared to confront homeless offenders on the rails. At 3 a.m., when she starts her shift, all 10 train cars are occupied by vagrants, she said.
Having returned to work just last week after recovering from the virus, Malave admitted she fears exposure to the homeless population setting up camp on her trains.
What scares me the most is that I had it, but I dont know if I can get it again, she explained.
Coming back to this scene after a month is so upsetting. After all my years with MTA, this is one of the worst things Ive ever seen. Its crazy,
Mayor de Blasio last week denied the homeless situation was out of control and argued the city does not have the magical ability to force people off the rails and into shelter.
But late Monday, City Hall announced it would call on the MTA to close certain end-of-the-line stations during overnight hours to help with outreach.

Mario Sorcigli @mariomets @seanhannity Mr Hannity I emailed your show last night, about the homeless situation on the NYC subway system I hope you will be able to show America what transit workers have to put up with on a daily basis.
Also from the article....
Interim NYC Transit President Sarah Feinberg said the agency was boosting its response amid the pandemic by increasing the number of cleaners in train cars, adding more police and hiring private contractors to help alert authorities to homelessness.
But Feinberg called on City Hall to take action, too, saying, Our city must do better than this.
The city polices the system and is legally obligated to provide housing to unsheltered New Yorkers.
Thank You, Bill deBlasio.
Well it is the #2 train.

At my age, I am kind of impressed that he can be sitting and having both legs over his head.
Long enough for her to get a couple of pics.
When seeing ‘youngsters’ riding down the road with driver having left foot sitting on the dash makes one sorta jealous when one has a ‘problem’ lifting leg to get in and out of vehicle.
Why does she ride like that???
Because she can!!!!!!
