    What is the meaning of the phrase, "Taking the A train", or "Taking the A train to nowhere?"

  2. WWMD says:

    Not sure, Chaya but this got my just-getting-over-a-cold-a** outta bed to go order myself a Manhattan! Oops, I meant out of bed and enjoy this gorgeous Sunday. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHRbEhLj540

    You can also Google, "Take the A Train (Ella Fitzgerald)".

      After googling, here is a snippet of what I found about the A train for real… Many years ago, the A Train was how “White New Yorkers would head to Harlem to hear jazz, ragtime, and the shows at the Apollo Theater where the black artists who were barred from the legitimate theaters performed.~~~ The train climbs a modest grade to reach a drawbridge. Then the train carries down almost to sea level. On a foggy day it almost appears that the train is floating on the water. Suddenly the land reappears as the subway pulls into Broad Channel station. It’s the most unique subway station anywhere. It appears to be in the middle of a marsh. Change here for the shuttle train to Rockaway Park, with its boardwalk and small amusement park…”

    Without "planning" your response the conversation can also be honest. ;)

    Looks like Lemont got a new suit of clothing with a hat to match. Cool.
