Subway Platform Temps Hit More Than 100 Degrees

August 12, 2018

News flash - it's Summer. It's hot. It's humid. It's pretty gross. 

No matter how much you love the heat, you are quickly reminded of just how not fun it can be whenever you enter what feels like the 8th circle of Hell... aka any subway station. 

We now have tangible evidence of this thanks to a new study. The worst is 14th Street-Union Square, which just had a recorded high temp of 104! 59th Street-Columbus Circle was close behind, hitting 101 degrees!

See how hot some of the city's other busiest stations clocked in at here... and maybe feel a little better if you're an L train rider currently looking for an alternative?
