False Advertising
(The J/M line today)
Circa 1918

Snuggle on the IRT (today’s 2/3 line)
Circa 1955.

Waiting on the old Redbird trains at Borough Hall
Circa 1970 (of course – check out the dude’s pants)

Lexington Avenue El (now the 4/5 line)going over the Brooklyn Bridge (now only foot/car traffic allowed)
1941

Under the El on Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn
(Tracks long gone)

And I couldn’t resist a shot of my neighborhood corner, which surprisingly looks just the same, minus the trolley car.
Circa 1949
