Photo by myself, somewhere underground.
The lighting on some subway trains can be surprisingly good.
The trains vary depending on the subway route. The cars on the 1/2/3/9 routes are very narrow, while the ones on the B/D/F are much wider. Some cars have LED signs and automated recordings announcing the subway stops. Older cars don't.
I think the above photo is on a B, D or F train. The interior is stainless steel, which prevents paint from sticking. The result is a lot of reflective surfaces to bounce the light around. It's like riding in a tin can.
By chance, Saturday Night Fever was on TV Thursday night when I was writing this. The subway has come a long way since the 70's!
Happy Friday, Everyone!
