The Worst Place to Lose Something

Court Square subway station

"The worst place to lose something in New York City is the place where you cannot go to get it even if you find it, even if it is just beyond your reach: the track bed of the subway, where neither station agent nor police nor firefighter will descend, where the rat holds dominion, where the third rail silently harbors its 600 volts and where a 350-ton train could be right around the corner."

  1. I was thinking down the sewer drain but I guess on the tracks is just as bad. They keys are closer but just as far away.
