The FUNKY Policies of the MTA

The FUNKY Policies of the MTA

It’s no secret that the MTA’s policies have been questionable at different points in time.  I must admit however, that I was very pleased to get reimbursed for metro-cards that failed me within the MTA system.  Despite all the cons of the New York City subway system, one can’t deny it’s one of the best modes of transportation in the world… when it’s working.

The Museum of UnCut Funk recently featured Kagan McLeod and his Infinite Kung Fu graphic novel in Aesthetic Grooves. VERY FUNKY STUFF.
