The Trains You Ride: the Personalities of New York City Subway Trains If They Were Ex-Boyfriends by Julia Lipscomb
ABC No Rio zine librarianJulia imagines (?) NYC subway lines as ex-boyfriends. She says stuff like 
"The C was like that reliable booty call that was always late, gross, and made your instinct go out of whack, but always delivered fabulously. The C may have been voted the worst train by Buzzfeed, but you know, you gotta admit that you’d still ride the C."
It’s a funny, quick read with lots of local references Barnardians and recent grads will recognize. 
Call number: Zines L5773t 2010. (The link won’t be good until sometime June 2, 2014.)
