Okay, where was this guy when I was constantly stuck waiting a hundred years for the D train every day for the past 4 years?!

Thomas C. Knox, with a table, some flowers, and Connect Four, just made my day.

He noticed that people don't really talk on the subway platform, to the point where people genuinely try to avoid standing too close to each other (New Yorkers, you know its true) and he just didn't get that.

So, he started the Date While You Wait project, getting people to have fun, be social, and talk to each other a little more.

It's so fun to watch and I would TOTALLY sit down if I saw him!

Who else thinks this is awesome?!

honestly I'd actually join him. it's good to pass the time and it's not like he's hitting on anyone. heck he was playing connect four with guys too. I'd be down for a round of c4.
I feel like he should have a longer table and more chairs to get more people involved. that would make it more interesting and I think more people would join in if he had a group of strangers all playing games and laughing. that's just my opinion
I would definitely join him for c4
I wrote about this last summer, I literally looked for him in the train station all last summer lol
This would make the subway experience 10 times better!
