I know the area might be sketchy, but those pictures of stations and entrances in Brooklyn are badass.

I always re-size my photos..

One thing I do not understand about this forum is that there is no "spoiler" to automatically re-size photos. The other forums I visit automatically re-size photos..One last thing about photo posting this forum allows hot linking..possibly because it is so large and would be hard to control.

MTA should consider painting their trains.

Nope..paint increases the weight of the train requiring more voltage to operate said train there by increasing cost of operations.

The increased dimensions also reduce already tight clearances to the danger zone.

On January 15, 2015, a water main broke around the area of the West 4th Street station. Said condition forced a couple of diversions. The (D) train was sent to 57th Street-7th Avenue, and the (B) was sent to Astoria-Ditmars Blvd. This was the result:

The trains in the photos you quoted are the Low-V series. These were built about 100 years ago, and are only used in museum and heritage service. The dark green paint is an accurate recreation of how they originally appeared. They shouldn't be considered to be in need of new point when they already have a story to tell.

00Zx99..that first Lo-v & Hi-V link is no good. the ) is missing from the end of the link.

Here's the correct link about Lo-v & Hi-V cars.

An incident at the 125th Street station in which someone was believed to have fallen into the tracks.

But fortunately, it was just a basketball.

You know ... I would love to see New York and its subway. Also known San Francisco with BART subway. I have great desire...

Speaking of subway have someone here from New Jersey? I have a question about a model of the So Paulo subway that was built there in 1972 by a company called "Richard Gelak Associates Runnemede, New Jersey."
