As far as an underground typo is concerned, it's not all that important unless, say, the F train is donning an R. So we hope the folks at NYC Transit don't actually fix the harmless errors—that would cost money, and it's sort of fun to spot these while waiting for the train to arrive. That said, last week a reader noticed an over 70-year-old typo on a Brooklyn G train platform, which was quickly followed with more human spellcheckers sending in their own quirky finds (including this one for "Brighten" Beach). Here are the top typos—send yours to tips(AT)gothamist(DOT)com and we'll add them!
