  1. I'm a lifelong 7 train victim and I don't mind to some extent especially considering the fact that 7 train announcements are usually garbled. But I can see how annoying it can get over time especially when the 7 has it's usual delays. I do like her energy when the train goes to Citi Field. I think that particular announcement would play well for Mets fans during the baseball season.

  2. Why the 7 train. I hate this announcement. I hate it. Very annoying. I just heard this in the morning rush hour and it was man annoying. 😫😫 bring back the original announcements

  3. If samuel jackson voiced one of NYC subway lines announcements, i would crack up but yet it would sound gangsta

  4. If Cardi B was to announce the 4 line to Promote her music LOLLLL “EOWWWWWWWWWWW THIS STOP HAVE THE EXCLUSIVESSS, anyways this stop is FORDHAM RD”

  5. The most annoying train announcements from Akwafina. Her voice is no fun and irritating. This is how broke MTA is. They need paid adverts like this one for Nora from Queens. Sad.

  6. Super annoying to say the least, how about stopping the corruption and fix this decadent line. Is the MTA trying to distract us from this horrible service by playing this annoying woman? Well is not working, shut the hell up and fix this broken down system already. Shut the f…. Baby!

  7. I'd like to hear Jony Ive speak for the announcements.

    Jony: "The next station is Roosevelt-Av Jackson Heights Station – (insert eloquent vocabulary)"

  8. Missy Elliot as the announcer:
    "You bitches better run, we're 'bout to close the doors motherfuckers."
    "Listen up everyone, you have five seconds to decide to transfer to the E and M trains or we close the doors. Hey, hey, what's happenin'? 5, 4, 3, 2, 1."

  9. It was funny when she said “ we’re going to Manhattan, we’re going under water, so hold your breath, just kidding.
