L train tops clean list

It’s hip to be clean, a survey released last week confirmed.

The L train, which rumbles through trendy Williamsburg, was rated the cleanest subway line in the city, according to the Straphangers Campaign’s ninth annual ‘shmutz survey.’

The train, which shuttles skinny-jeaned passengers from Williamsburg cross-town in Manhattan, saw significant improvement from just two years ago.

Eighty-eight percent of the L train’s cars were rated clean, up from 61 percent two years ago, the survey notes.

The Straphangers credited New York City Transit’s new car cleaning initiative on the L and the 7 train
