From the Rhyming Metro-North Conductor

On the Hudson Line this past weekend, every station had a couplet. The faraway, soulful voice of a lyrical conductor announced each town in rhyme, and Peekskill had more lines than the rest. They went:

If you’re going to Peekskill
You’re in for a thrill
That’s the next request we’re going to fill
Peekskill

 

Spiders on a Train (Platform)

Breaking: There’s suddenly an inordinate amount of spiders in both the Peekskill and the Croton-Harmon stations, says a tipster and fellow bleary commuter. This has been independently confirmed by Peekskill Rocks!. And they’re big.

We should befriend them, however: According to Discovery News, “Spidey Silk Can Actually Halt a Train.” Maybe that’s why the morning trains to Poughkeepsie are always running late? Developing.

If you’ve got further evidence of arachnids on the platforms (or indeed any wildlife–geese, foxes, or butterflies, for instance), please send it our way.
