SILENT RUNNING  Film footage from 1905 shows an IRT subway train — lighted with a bank of lights from a parallel train — winding its way from 14th Street to 42nd Street in Manhattan.  (h/t The New York Daily News)

A 30-year-old man confessed today to being the subway psycho who “launched” an innocent straphanger into tracks, where he was killed by an oncoming Q train, law enforcement sources told The Post.

The suspect, Nieem Davis, was being questioned today in Manhattan, in connection to the grisly death of Ki Suk Han, 58, yesterday afternoon. The man was picked up on 50th Street near Seventh Avenue by a transit police captain, who was on a coffee break at 1:30 p.m. and ran over to grab him.

Davis confessed to shoving Han into tracks, though he’s not been formally charged yet, law enforcement sources said.

Han, of Elmhurst, Queens, desperately tried to scramble back to the platform as onlookers screamed, shouted and frantically waved their hands and bags in a bid to get the downtown Q train to stop at around 12:30 p.m.

Gotta love NYC. If I saw her at 9:45 a.m. how early do you think she had to wake up to get that thing ready?

THIS IS AMAZING

Wow, I took this picture almost exactly a year ago (August 24th). Never expected to see it on my dash again. LOL.

It’s a work of follicular art.

DIG IT   "Sandhogs" pose in front of large drill bit after completing a tunnel through Manhattan schist about 40 feet beneath ground level.  Two new tunnels will allow the No. 7 NYC Subway train to connect to a new station at 11th Avenue and 34th Street: the project, expected to be completed in 2013, will cost $2.1 billion.  (Photo: Chad Rachman / New York Post; go here for the full gallery)

“They jump two feet from a running start; they can fall 40 feet onto a concrete slab and keep running. We’re no match for them, as far as I’m concerned. Man does not stand no chance.”

SOLOMON PEEPLES, a former director of the city’s Bureau of Pest Control Services, using the double-negative as only a New Yorker can in describing the rodent infestation problem in the City’s subway system. 

A two-year study shows that rats are more likely to be found behind subway station walls, instead of living in train tunnels; not surprisingly, the study blames people’s propensity for eating on the subway - and the subsequent trash they generate - for the rat problem.

Still hungry?
