And on this date in 1970, I rode on a 7 express for the first time. My father and I went to see the Mets at the original Toilet Bowl (I still have both ticket stubs). Tom Seaver went all the way as the Mets beat the Padres. After the game, they were running expresses back to Manhattan, and we caught one such train. It marked the first time I saw the Mets in person.
