  • "Two decades of New York's subway trains and surroundings presented in large full-color images. See 1970s and 1980s New York through the attitude and reputation of its transportation system.

    "While it wasn't the cleanest system, it had the most color and attracted people from all over the world. Tod Lange, artist and subway archivist, presents more than 150 images of his favorite train lines, graffiti painted cars, stations, subway yards, and work equipment that defined one of New York's bygone eras. It may have been a scary and dangerous place to some but it was home to millions. Rail fans and those hankering for a memento of this period in New York City's history will appreciate this rare look at trains that have since been turned into scrap metal or sunk to the bottom of the ocean."
