The Bogart and Morgan entrance to the L train has always been a strange one.

The Burning Bush took a moment to ask various commuters what they thought the reason behind the shoddy revamp was. Most people either grunted or spat at us, but we were able to cobble together a vaguely intelligent quote from Conspira Cee, a 22-year-old SVA student who warned, “The MTA is covering something up.

All I know is, something is rotten in the state of Bushwick.” Because yes, Bushwick is its own state.
