No 13: Down below the towers

I realised today that I’d as much time on the subway this week as i had walking above ground. At least, it felt like that. Every subway journey I'd taken had been long, slow and fairly uncomfortable. The NYC subway is old and run down and definitely in need of a scrub. But its indispensable too. Without it, the city wouldn't function at all.

Today’s picture is on the platform of Utica Avenue in Brooklyn, near where I’ve been staying all week. It looks like nearly every other station in NYC: Dark, grimy and often feeling deserted - even when it's busy.
