2008_08_subway.jpgWomen in heels and skirts know to steer clear of sidewalk subway gratings, as do most people averse to fetid gusts of air from beneath the city’s streets. But sometimes when you’re rushing down a crowded sidewalk, you take your chances. And sometimes you fall in, as happened this morning to a man who crashed through a subway grate at the corner of Willoughby Avenue and Marcy in Bedford-Stuyvesant. The victim was rescued and taken to Kings County Hospital; the extent of his injuries is unclear, but last year a woman fell through a sidewalk grate on 52nd Street and lived to tell the terrifying tale.
