Evening at 72nd Street, on the Upper West Side

W72nd Street, UWS
Photo by myself at 72nd Street and Broadway, on the Upper West Side.

A night view of the subway station at 72nd Street and Broadway, on the Upper West Side. It was cool and clammy, Tuesday night.

This is one of the major subway stations uptown, since the express and local trains stop here. The 2 and 3 trains run express, while the 1 and 9 trains run locally.

This is near the neighborhood where Seinfeld lived, in the tv show. The real Jerry Seinfeld is rumored to have lived in an unglamorous walk-up building on West 81st Street, before he became the famous gazillionare that he is.

A beautiful, atmospheric shot, Kitty. And I love this subway station! When we stay on the Upper West Side, it's our go-to stop. Near Fairway Market, near Gray's Papaya. And the little park around it is well used, pretty much all the time. Nice.

I just love New York, the people, the buildings, park, the humming of cars. it seems that you can almost find anything and the city itself has something to offer to everybody. Not to mention the event spaces new york has. It is almost synonymous to a breathing city
