Despite the bloody Brooklyn subway shooting, resilient NYC commuters still return to the trains

Terrorism indeed has no place in New York.

A day after a bloody attack on an N train near the 36th St. station in Brooklyn left 10 people with gunshot wounds and another 13 injured, people still rush to the area to ride trains.

Damares Batista, 48, who regularly commutes along the same line as the shooting, said he felt scared, but this place is his neighborhood and where he works.

“That’s my neighborhood, it’s really hard because you have to get out everyday to go work,” Batista said.

“I just feel scared, a little scared. I see people on the train today they are always on their phones but nobody was on the phone today, everyone looking at each other,” Batista added.

Lonya Nash, 34, said she took the subway Wednesday because it’s an easier alternative to driving.

“It’s kind of wasteful for me to take my car, so I figured the subway would be the best route,” Nash said.

“It’s unnerving that someone can get down in the subway with so much stuff,” Nash added.
