Or just the “opening scene to NY, NY Land.”


On Sunday morning, as reporter Colleen Hagerty rode the uptown 6 train in New York City, she heard something clinking around underneath the seats.

She told BuzzFeed News she watched as a man reached down to retrieve an unopened bottle of alcohol in a plastic bag.

The man proceeded to pop open the bottle with ease.

“Other people were starting to laugh and pay attention,” Hagerty recalled.

Then, Hagerty witnessed another man retrieve an empty liquor container on the subway floor, and watched as the first guy poured what looked like sparkling wine or champagne into the second guy’s empty bottle — that, again, was found seconds ago on the subway. The two strangers clinked glasses and shared the bottle of alcohol.

“Everyone on the train was laughing about it,” she said.
