NYC Transportation

New York City 2014-12-27 23

Few New York subway stations lobbies are as spiffy as this one under a newer, high-priced office building. Most stations are around a century old and pretty gritty (although I think many in Chicago are even more barren). 

People can try getting around on a bicycle if the weather is good, although you may take your life in your hands doing so in this city. Maybe it's okay on a simple, slow bike with a sumo wrestler on the front to push away obstacles.

Nice observations. When we where in Chicago 3 years ago I saw how especially the loop construction was very rusty al the way and was wondering who was responsible for it. About the creepy font in my posting of yesterday I gave a little explanation there.

Mass transit or mass confusion. I don't know what to think looking at your first shot.

This is the only time in my life I'll say this: the sumo wrestler's cute!
