A native New Yorker explores his city’s subway system, a dazzling subterranean maze that includes 600 miles of active tracks, abandoned sections, and disused stations.
About Beneath the Streets:
Only a handful of transit workers, daring explorers, and graffiti writers have experienced the full scope of the New York subway system. Beneath The Streets reveals this world for the first time with fantastic photographs captured from throughout the tunnels and byways of the sub- way. Although it provides service to over 5 million riders every day, the subway is for most a sealed system. Very few of its patrons are aware of the extent of this vast underground infrastructure. The authors of this important historical work first discovered this underground world in the process of photographing graffiti. Their riveting work brings to light a subterranean maze that includes 600 miles of active tracks as well as abandoned sections and disused stations.
