Man, all you haters need to relax. I'm from NYC and I use the subway system regularly. Often there are performers that I don`t want to see/hear, so I`ll just ignore them and/or walk away. Believe it or not, most subway stops are big enough that you can walk away and barely hear the music. Generally, these performers stay at these larger stops, since there are more people there, Also, rarely have I had to wait more than 3 minutes for a train (there are exceptions), so it`s not that big of a deal.
At least these people are performing for money (and you don`t have to give them any if you don`t want - amazing how that works). What I can`t stand is when I`m trapped in a subway car with a smelly homeless guy who hasn`t showered in years coming up to each person and begging for money.
