    The (S) is a remnant of the first subway, which ran up the east side from City Hall (today's 4,5,6), then across town (shuttle), and then up the west side (1,2,3)!

    On the Uptown E platform, listen to this old African American (blues ?) singer. The best voice I've heard in the subway. He makes you want to miss and wait for the next train.
