NYC Subway - The Last 100 Years in Photos

The NYTimes has an interesting photo feature of the last 100 years of the subway system. It shows an era that I am glad I missed - the sketchiness of the subway back in the late 70's to 80's. But the 40's to 50's would have been cool to see.


  1. What great photos of such a classically American icon! Thanks for sharing.


  2. The subway cars in the 80s were amazing!! I wish the trains were still full out bombed in tags and murals. Being a design site, one would think those would be preferred.
