NYC Punster Subway Conductor

From 1973 until 1993, Harry Nugent provided entertainment in addition to information as a conductor for the New York Subway. The IHT had article an about his retirement, which included this witticism, which he used when the train was delayed:

Someone once said that success is a journey and not a destination, and by that definition we’re eminently successful.

Also, in 1995, a brief documentary about Nugent was made.

    I’m inspired. I’ve started a campaign to honor memorable conductors and MTA everyday heroes on my blog.
