There are now Xs at the Lexington Avenue/53rd Street station on the Queens-bound E/M platform and at the 51st Street station on the 6 line to indicate where riders can stand to maintain proper distancing.

"To give a little more guidence to folks who are in the system about what 6 feet looks like, where it is and how you would social distance," interim NYC Transit President Sarah Feinberg said. "We just wanted to see how the few riders we have would react to it. Would they automatically go to the X? Would they miss it? Would they see it on the floor?"
