The New York Subway is one of the most extensive rapid transport system in the world. A vast network of well over 460 stations and 650 miles of passenger track that runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A twisting, turning, underground maze of connectivity that also offers warmth and light and serves as refuge to thousands of New York’s homeless. I doubt there are many subway stations in Manhattan without a ‘permanent resident’. Some spend the whole of the winter in or around its tunnels and platforms. Below are just a few photographs taken on a single journey across Manhattan.
There is a stunning documentary called ‘Dark Days’ by Marc Singer, it is a real eye opener and not for the faint of heart. For those who have not seen it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2DFb7ifihg
