There isn't any one face of New York. The city is an amalgam of personalities, a collection of disparate characters. Some of these men and women achieve iconic status and become emblems for an entire way of life. Times Square has the Naked Cowboy. The Upper East Side has Woody Allen. But what of the subway system? Who is its standard bearer?

Submitted for your consideration: A man proudly feeding pasta to his pet rat.
