    Those 80s photos reminded me of the epic subway break dance battle in Beat Street!



    I had one of those blue and silver Puma windbreakers (with matching pants) back in the 80s!

    Wow!!! I was shocked to see how filthy and graffiti-d up the train cars were. They're a lot better now, right?

    Yeah, the trains are much better now, they are graffiti-proof, but there are still a few scratches here and there.
    I remember taking the subway in the late 70's and early 80's it was like a dystopian future. NY was a fucken mess.

    Here's a pic of today's cars. Add in a bum, some vomit and a few of your favorite urban youths- but this is what it looks like.

    New York in the 70's had its own charm. With the current mayor, we might be experiencing the charm again.

    I remember those chewing gum machines! I rode my first subway back in the mid 1960s. It was pretty amazing to me, a kid from the Long Island suburbs.

    My favorite subway photo is this one of Bing Crosby. It was from the mid 1970s while he was doing a few performances on Broadway. On his off time he took the subway to the racetrack. No limo. No bodyguards. No entourage. Just a regular guy not afraid to go out among the people.

    New York was such a shithole in the late 70s/early 80s. Glad they cleaned the place up.

    Oh, ok. Phew! I'm spoiled-- the trains here in Japan are packed tight during rush hour, which sucks, but at least they're clean. And the seats have cushions!

    Yeah, it's a legit photo. He was pretty frail by then after having dealt with a number of health issues. I think he died a year after this was taken on a golf course in Spain.
