  1. cool bus stops
    They could use stuff like that out on Colerain. The benches people have to use out there in all kinds of weather are lame and even look kind of forlorn.
    Doubt if it’s any kind of priority for the township, tho.

  2. I think I have seen pictures of that subway terminus. If that’s the only way to see it, seems they should just charge a higher price for people to take the train there, pause it & let people look around.
    Is it accessible on foot?

    In the Clive Barker movie, Midnight Meat Train, at the end of one of the subway lines…
    ~SPOILER ALERT~

    There is an enclave of alien, supernatural man eating monsters who employ a network of infected humans to provide them with semi dressed human cadavers.

  3. Quimbob, those bus stops are so awesome! I love that a mundane point of departure/arrival can become a destination in its own right [that’s why I obsess over artwork in train stations as well].

    Speaking of, this MTA crackdown seems like utter bullshit. You used to have to get off the 6 train at the last stop [which is standard for every terminus] but, a few years ago, this was changed, so that you’re now legally allowed to loop around and see the “secret” station [the only other way is via the occasional Transit Museum tour for museum members only].

    It wouldn’t be practical to charge more for this [the fare collection system is just in/out and designed so you could ride trains all day for one fare], but what’s the harm in letting riders stay on anyway?

    BTW, some photos of the old City Hall station for your perusal.
