In all my years of exploring Manhattan Island, I’ve never seen an address like this…

A rat jumped out of the bricks and scared me as I took this one, hence the blur


On an abandoned building down by the waterfront, someone had written dates all over the place. Not sure what his/her connection was to the building, there certainly wasn’t any rhyme or reason to the date ranges…


…that’s why I love you

The best part of the trip is watching people’s reactions as you roll through the stations. They ranged from anger *why isn’t this train stopping??* to bewilderment *What ridiculous plan is the MTA concocting now??*


Our train, the R-1, made in 1931. It actually ran passengers until the early 1970’s!



Get your sockets here!


Signal Light



After dropping into a taqueria on the UWS, I noticed this on a wall near the register. The woman still remembered what she ordered, a veggie burrito with extra guacamole…


Morrison, stripped
