The Subway Man was an entity seen in the subways of Manhattan, New York on October 1, 1999. The witness was ascending the escalator at Penn Station and had reached street level when she noticed standing about 20 feet away, what seemed to be a male figure about 6-feet, 7 inches tall. He stood near the mouth of the entranceway to the station. The tall being stared at the passerby’s as though he was trying to choose one of them. The witness caught a glimpse of his face but she turned away immediately, and walked away down the sidewalk without turning back, feeling that if she would turn around for another look something would happen to her. For an unknown reason she felt tremendous fear.
The Subway Man seemed to be a male figure about 6-feet, 7 inches tall. His face was light gray (almost white), with thick brows and menacing eyes. He stood in a peculiar way, standing with his back arched, shoulders broad, his elbows pointing towards his back, and his head was tilted back just a bit looking down at the top of people’s heads.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- A demonic entity
- A normal-but-creepy human being
There are no notable accounts other than the main account.
- The witness quickly left the area and did not return.
