New Use For G Train: Sending Soup

Do you have a friend or family member that lives along the G train? Well, maybe you would consider sending them afternoon lunch via the G train (the Garden has a delicious selection of homemade soup); that’s exactly what one NY Times reporter did on Sunday.

I just put some lentil soup on the G train to see if it makes it all the way to my friend in Greenpoint, unescorted.

It’s a 21-minute trip. I’ll update here as the experiment progresses.

On Sunday, Annie Correal tweeted that she sent lentil soup inside a bag on the G train to see if it would make the trip from Carrol Street to Greenpoint “unescorted.”

The purple bag was placed on a seat in the G train next to a window and approximately 20 minutes later, the soup arrived apparently untampered with.

While we don’t recommend placing food unattended in the already pungent subway, this experiment may just come in handy when your Church Avenue friend has a hankering for some authentic pierogis.
