EntertainmentCelebrities Celebrities riding the subway in New York City By amNY.com staff Updated May 23, 2018 9:45 AM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email Stars -- they're just like us! Well, sort of. They may have private cars in Hollywood (OK, here, too), but these celebs know that sometimes you just can't beat the subway for getting around New York City. Fergie Photo Credit: @sara_smile38 via Instagram Fergie turned a rainy New York afternoon into a subway singalong on May 16, 2018. En route an annual Paley Center music and television gala, the Black Eyed Peas singer decided to take the train from Columbus Circle to Wall Street to escape the thunderstorm. She documented the entire encounter, from standing on the platform to greeting fans on the 2 train, on her Instagram. "So we're taking the subway because a tropical storm hit New York, and we had to get from Columbus Circle to Cipriani's Wall Street ... Full white suit, check it out, August Getty," the singer said on her Instagram Story. She was photographed by commuters and reportedly sang along to her track "Glamorous" with fans.

"My allergies don't bug me on the 6th Avenue Local!" Cohen wrote alongside a selfie on a busy commuter train.

You'll find him riding the B train, absorbed in a copy of the New York Times. We spotted Turturro waiting for the train on April 25, 2017.
