      CITY HALL SUBWAY STATION | MANHATTAN | NEW YORK | USA: *New York City Subway* Deep under old New York, lies abandoned platforms, train tracks and entire train stations. Some, maybe glimpsed by passengers on some lines, others lay hidden behind doors or flights of stairs.

      Opened in 1904 and designed by Rafael Guastavino, the City Hall subway station was intended to be the crown jewel of the original New York City subway line. The station was closed in 1945 and has remained that way to date. Originally, commuters were required to disembark at the Brooklyn Bridge station before the train made its way back uptown. In recent years, passengers have been permitted to remain on the train while it passes through this stunning and historic station.

    Gotta love the yellow fire escape!

    October • just now It is fall and time to reflect ... pause ... be aware of what has gone ... changed ... evolved ... and I will consider my words this year as well as my deeds .... as I sit and sip on my deep red wine ... I will listen to the rustling leaves and note the eager arrival of cooler days ... the shortening light and the approach of winter.

    If lotto is involved, I will NEVER come anywhere NY ever again. What a nightmare to have to live in this state. Like communist China. I'd even pay to get my family out.
