Forget OPTO, the best reason to ride the L train might be its status as "the love train." American Express released survey results saying that New Yorkers claim the L is the "hot spot" for meeting new people. Among the 600 people questioned, 30% said the L was the best. Gothamist has a few theories of our own. First, the L is so crowded at certain times that you're virtually on top of your fellow passengers. If that's not good enough for an introduction, the L is great at transporting people to and from nightlife. from the Meatpacking district (gag) to the East Village to Williamsburg. Move enough drunk people back and forth and you're guaranteed a love connection.
Have you found any subway love on the L or any other line? And there's always the missed connections on Craig's List.
