(DNAINFO) Nicole Levy | March 9, 2016 — A recent study by Chase Freedom found that New Yorkers really hate touching subway poles.
You’re not the only one in this city hoarding hand sanitizer.
Commuting New Yorkers may be more germophobic than commuters most major U.S. cities, a recent study by the credit card Chase Freedom has found.
Asked to rank five “commuter super powers” based on which they would want most, 47 percent of New York City residents participating in the online survey said they wished they had the power to kill germs on subways, buses and trains. They chose that over the ability to clear traffic jams, to mute all the sounds on one’s trip, to rid the air of unpleasant smells and to guarantee oneself an empty seat. (Somehow, the power to teleport did not make the list.)
