Woman Chops Onions On The Subway, Calls It Performance Art

By: Ami Angelowicz / April 13, 2012

When you live in NYC, you see your fair share of “performance art” on the subway. My personal favorite is the old lady who plays “The Chicken Dance” on a recorder. I always watch her. But everyone else gets the Blank Stare. That’s when I put on my headphones and pretend like I don’t see them. This performance artist is impossible to ignore. Her act consists of chopping onions … on my subway line. God, I hate onions so much. And I hate this idea even more. Lord help this woman if she ever finds herself sharing a train car with me. This is just unspeakable. Abominable. Not entertaining or thought provoking or edgy. Just rude! I’m surprised none of the passengers organized a mutiny. Since when are New Yorkers so polite?
