I spend a lot of time underground--both inside the subway cars and on the platforms waiting for my silver chariot to arrive. One swipe of a metrocard and you can start your journey, snaking your way beneath the five boroughs of New York City. Did you know that the longest ride on the subway without a transfer is over 30 miles? All that for the bargain price of $2.25.
With almost 660 miles of tracks and 468 stations, subway travelers can find themselves with a lot of time and subterranean space to do some work, drink coffee, meditate, play the guitar....and even find love, as evidenced by my photo above.
Lizzard_nyc's image below made me nostalgic. I used to live a few blocks from this station in the East Village and I spent a ton of time down there. I love all the lines and patterns in this photo--which reminds me, Tammy will begin musing on repeating patterns tomorrow so be sure to stop by as she kicks off our new theme!
See you soon,
