While politicians have tried to downplay the rampant violence on the city’s subway, residents are growing more and more frustrated with the conditions. 

Elizabeth Gomes, a 33-year-old mother, was savagely beaten by a man on the subway and nearly lost her eye. 

Tiffany Cabán, a Queens district councilmember, tweeted that subway violence is a ‘one-in-a-million event,’ causing Gomes to speak out.

‘(Almost) 99 percent of these violent (attacks) are coming from the subways. There is no help there. There is hardly any kind of cameras or anything there. So, how could she even say that we’re making these things up? The subway is a dangerous place.’

Gomes recalled the event and responded to questions about transit safety. 'The subway is a dangerous place,' she said
