NYC Subway Stories from the 80s.


Back in the 80s, New York City was a tough place to be; especially when riding the underground rails. These photos tell that dangerous, unpredictable, gritty side, filled with sharp objects and blunt instruments all against a canvas filled with desperate black marker graffitti. I remember first seeing the photo above several years ago, I believe the man with the gun is a plain clothed police officer arresting a mugger on the subway. Photos courtesy of mdolla.
