Escorted by Bronx Borough
president Ruben Diaz Jr.,
Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton rode the
New York City subway on Thursday. It took five swipes of
Clinton’s MetroCard to get through the turnstile at the
161st Street station at Yankee Stadium. She rode one stop to
the 170th Street station on the 4 train, according to CNN’s
Dan Merica. Clinton’s ride follows what many considered to
be a gaffe by her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who
told the New York Daily News you use tokens to access the
subway. Check out scenes from Clinton’s subway ride
online at Huffington Post
