Midmonth Theme: Subway Day

Today is September 15, which means it's mid-month subway theme day again. This photo was taken last week from the elevated subway train station (#7 train) on a surprising clear day. You can see the skyline of Manhattan quite clearly.

Three other cities are participating in the mid-month subway theme:

Cool lamps! The tracks seem to go far away into a heavenly city (Oz?).

Happy subway day!

Sorry, but I did not make it this month! But I wrote a small word of excuse and made a reference to you, Stockholm and Budapest in my today's post. Hope to do better next month!

Yes, I always love looking towards the Manhattan skyline from Queens.
An excellent photo.
Than you so much for hosting the party yesterday.
Hope you and Chuck got good photos the rest of the afternoon.

I love those lampposts!!

What a pretty shot with those big puffy clouds. The tracks seem to go on forever. I always like waiting on the elevated platforms (except of course in the wintertime!) A lot of them have great views.

Big clouds and a very nice perspective! Those lamps are very pretty too. They should paint them a fun color to make them shine a bit more.

That's a great shot, I had no idea you had elevated platforms with such a great view of Manhattan!

Hi Ming, nice picture of the skyline and the elevated subway.

(Note:Did you hear we had a terrible train wreck a few miles from my home on Friday with Metrolink and a freight train. They're still clearing the tracks.)

It's so empty. Whenever I am in London, it's always packed out. Nice lead out to the skyline backdrop.
