Photographer Ashley K. Barnes documents the recent subway stunt, now in its 11th year in NYC.

THE NO PANTS SUBWAY RIDE is an annual event put on by Improv Everywhere, in which occurs just that…..people with no pants get off and on the subway throughout the entire city. At a certain time, everyone participating removes their pants and stands in their “under-garments” while casually reading a book, looking out the window, acting frustrated because they are late, basically, your everyday subway behavior.
