The New York subway lines through the eyes of ‘Lens,’ the New York Times’ photography blog. To mark the system’s 106th birthday, staffers from the paper went throughout the system, making images.
This is a superb set of photographs, combined with images going back to the original construction of the subways.
You can go to their site and click your way through over 90 images of life on the subway. I’ve included some of my favorite images here.
Interesting how much the ‘feel’ of these images changes once the newspaper begins to run color, isn’t it?
