In the late 1960s, there were plans to expand the Subway including building a line that would've ran along the Long Island Expressway.

Wow! Those vintage subway cars look better than when I was a little boy 60 years or so ago...see those yellow seats? they were stuffed with straw.

That's just the way they painted the R7A. It doesn't mean anything.

In addition to the Second Avenue Subway, the MTA had promised to open a new station on the Staten Island Railway. It might not open this year after all, but no one really cares. They can probably get away with never opening it LOL.

I saw this from China..



Quote:
A magnetic levitation train with graffiti runs in Changsha, east China's Hunan Province, Dec. 15, 2016. Twenty graffiti artists decorated the magnetic levitation trains recently to promote green transportation in Changsha. (Xinhua/Long Hongtao)
..and it reminded me of this during the 70s on the NYC subway.



The biggest difference the Chinese subway allowed "graffiti artists" to express their work on the cars...As we know in NYC this was some sort of 'expressionist vandal graffiti art"...<<<<...my words.

The trains on the Rome Metro have plenty of graffiti on them.

The NYT posted a story about the fabulous new art in the new 2nd ave stations.
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/19/ar...ubway-art.html

A sampling...

Check em out, the stations look like they're going to be quite beautiful. There's about 32 photos grouped by station.

MTA always using the same old cheap floor tiles that stain easily and are difficult to clean. The wall tiles, another poor choice, makes it look like a refurbished older station. Looks similar to the lexington avenue station on the culver line.
