The train entered Pennsylvania Station in the morning rapids, with the doors open and straight up the escalator.
You stick to the left, go up the stairs and find out that you can save precious seconds and get some exercise.
But experts agree: You've done something wrong and won the price at the expense of other passengers. Boarding an escalator two by two and standing side by side is the better approach.
This may sound counterintuitive, but researchers say it would be more efficient if nobody walked on the escalator.

Clearly, this is not a good thing for escalators themselves, though this is a matter of debate.
Paul Wiedefeld, the general manager of the MTR, said the recent stand-up and walk-through in Washington, D.C. broke out and the left-hand and right-hand walk described in the subway rules and rituals could be damaged escalator. Escalator company Otis said it was not true that a report by NBC Radio, Mr. Wilderfield, clarified that standing side-by-side would be safer to reduce the chance of a fall if everyone did.
Otis said in a statement that his long-held position is that passengers should not walk on escalators as a matter of safety.
The company wrote: "Regulations and standards vary from region to region, but our advice is that escalator passengers can step on the rails and be alert."
The subway is not the first public transport operator trying to solve the problem.
Last year, London Underground conducted a test at London's busiest Holborn Station, with more than 56 million passengers a year and escalators reaching 77 feet tall.
The plan? Change passenger behavior so that they ride side by side during rush hour instead of walking.
The MTRCL concluded that most of the left-hand side of the escalator station, which is more than 18.5 meters (61 feet) in height, is unused, resulting in a clogged bottom and wiring. "Underground" campaign is to fill the space on the escalators, rather than leave most of the left side of each step, except those who choose to walk.
An experiment in 2015 found about 30% less congestion on both sides of the escalator.
The consultants at Capgemini Consulting in London explored efficiency issues by using a few days of journeys on an escalator at Green Park Station and then using the data in a computer model.
They found that the escalator had gone 26 seconds while standing for 40 seconds. However, according to a blog post published by researchers, when everyone stands, "time in the system" - or how long it takes to reach the escalator and then take it.
According to their calculations, when 40 percent of people walk, the average time to stand is 138 seconds, and the average time for the Pacers is 46 seconds. When everyone stood up, the average time dropped to 59 seconds. For the Pacers, this means losing 13 seconds, but for the standers this is a 79 second improvement.
The researchers also found that the length of the route to the escalator dropped to 24 people from 73.
If everyone stands, why the results will improve?
Counselors Shivam Desai and Lukas Dobrovsky wrote: "People on the right tend to walk every step, and those walking can waste space every three steps.
So everyone should stand on the escalator, not walk, because there will be greater benefits, right?
Yes, I wish you good luck, at least in the United States, experts say.
Jenny L. Scheringink, a psychology professor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Mass., Said in an e-mail that people, they are.
She added: "That's why people put the train on the seat next to the train so people do not sit by.
Curtis W. Reisinger, a psychologist at Zucker Hillside Hospital in Glen Oaks, New York, said it's hard to convince everyone to win if everyone is on the escalator.
He wrote in an e-mail: "Overall, I am not too optimistic about the feeling that altruism can override the sense of urgency and urgency in the major metropolitan areas of speed and expediency.
Sam Schwartz, a former New York City traffic commissioner and transport researcher at Hunter College, says people are more competitive than science and logic.
He wrote in an e-mail: "In the United States, self-interest dominates our behavior and has problems anywhere on the escalator." I do not believe Americans (if they ever did) have a Reasonable button. "
