There's a conductor on the 1 train ...
Who makes me smile whenever I hear him come in over the speaker system. He puts a little extra into the announcement at each station, especially north of 125th St., where he says, "Home of the legendary Cotton Club in the village of Harlem." He continues:
137th St. City College. 145th St. Sugar Hill. 157th St. 168th St. Washington Heights. Audubon Ballroom. 181st St. George Washington Bridge. Yeshiva University.
Just a few added details, but enough to distinguish him from the rest.
