A Brooklyn man is going viral on Twitter today. He gave his followers a step-by-step tutorial on how to evade paying your subway fare, while the city is facing a coronavirus outbreak.

New York City is currently under a de-facto lockdown. All bars, restaurants, and nightclubs are closed. But the subways are still open.

The subway cost $2.75 to get on, a price that many feel is too high, especially given the current economic slowdown.
