Just below the streets of NYC, one can find one of the largest subway systems in the world, and one of the largest reminders of the ‘bad old days’ of NYC – where crime and despair ruled the day. In these tunnels, this NYC of the past lives on. Dirty, graffiti covered subway tunnels, where the homeless still occasionally make their homes and where serendipitous insomniac explorers lurk in the dark, waiting and watching. Where graffiti artists still get over, 2 decades after the trains were cleaned.
Another RARE 1st issue release from the ProFreshionalism Vault. Only 1 copy available of this independent and rare view into the tunnels of the NYC subway.
Paperback: 174 pages
Publisher: LTV Press (September 11, 2011)
This book takes a hard look at this underground realm, through 280+ photographs, 7 chapters and 174 pages. This is a no holds barred view of the live tunnels, abandoned spaces, hidden nitches and insane ‘transit recidivists’ that enjoy this inhospitable and deadly environment as if it were one huge all city amusement park. Admission is free, but your survival through the night will be questionable at best. Hop the turnstyle, take the ride.
