I just watched the original Taking of Pelham One Two Three. It was filmed in 1974 I believe. Definitely worth watching to see how the subway system used to be run. A few good shots of the stations too, but nothing too gritty.

If I'm not mistaken they're being drown for a purpose of benefiting marine life. Not sure how that works though.

Yeah, They eventually become covered in coral. Apparently it works very well.

Seeing those pictures of the subway in the 80's I think I'd rather went to hell then used the subway back than.
