My favorite line is the (7) Flushing Line, mainly since it's a childhood route and the years i've dealt with it through High School and currently College.

My least favorite line is the (J) (Z) Nassau St/Jamaica Line, only because of the ridiculous headways between trains.

My favorite NYC Subway line is the A, because of the variety of trackage it runs on, and it's use of R32s in the summer. My least favorite route is the R line because of its horrid headways and timers galore.

I don't have a favorite, but I will say the 6 because it passes near one of my favorite colleges and it has pretty nice stations. Least favorite is the 2. The line is just boring south of 42nd Street.

I would say my favorite line will be the D when heading to 174th 175th for the reason it brings back memories since i was little kid when my mom my sisters and my self would relax on the D and then when i had to run a errand to go see my aunt on my old it brought back memories on the D plus was quickest way to go home at late nights when it was Express and my least favorite line would be the R mostly from canal all the way down to 95th and vice verse the line is too slow takes hours to get me to a transfer for a express but that is my most favorite and most least line

My favorite line would have to be the B train because it brings me back some memories when it still had the R40 slants making express stops on the brighton line. Most of the slants were on the B and it was one of the unique trainsets out there. used to be....

My least favorite would be the 6 train due to its high levels of crimes, such as stabbings, gunshots, robberies, etc...

My favorite line is A because there are drama(arguing, fighting, blaming, insulting and drunk),
smell very weird, loud, and faster riding.

My favorite line are H(for R32) and S(for R46) because rockaway parks culture :)

My favorite line would be the (N) because I would get off at 59 Street. Most people would assume I would stop at 8th Avenue because it's an Asian neighbourhood and I'm asian too, but I get out at 59th which sometimes leaves the people who assumed wondering why I got out at that station.

My least favorite line would be the (R) for having a local route. It takes a long time to get from Bay Ridge to Woodhaven Blvd in my opinion. It takes about 1+ hour/s

I completely agree with you, the (N) is my favorite, I think its efficient and least favorite is the (R) becuase it is very inefficient and is a all local line. Cmon, waiting 20 minutes for the (R) during rush hour while 2-4 (N) trains pass by, that's pathetic.

My favorite line is the (D) Mostly because it does bring back memories such as when it use to run via Brighton before it hit the West End. It's always on time, except when there are people who hold the doors or pull the EMG Cord. On the other hand, my least favorite line would be the (R), rarely comes on time when you wait for it, etc.

Right. Especially in summer when it's hot as hell, I have to wait like 20-30 minutes just for a (R) to arrive.

My absolute favorite line is the (A) because of the variety of runs it has and the length of the line. Although everyone has made a case for the (R) line being the least favorite line (all points that were made are absolutely 1000% correct) has anyone really considered the purpose for the (Z) line yet! I know it is supposed to supplement the (J) during rush hours but really does anyone else wish it was a regular line so you can possibly say that have actually been on a (Z). I have only ridden that train once since 1995!
