When 1010 WINS' Roger Stern asked fellow commuters their thoughts on the incident, some expressed fear, while others upheld New Yorkers' tradition of not being fazed by anything, even a man pulling a knife on a crowded subway platform.
"It's a city of 8 million people, you're always gonna have events like that," said Greg. "It just can't be avoided with that many people. I think the subways are safe and I think they run well."
The alleged perpetrator was taken to Bellevue for intoxication, and the victims were treated for their injuries. The man stabbed in the chest remains in critical condition.
