Waiting for the train to arrive. Dumbo. Brooklyn, New York City.

New York City is currently in the middle of a heat wave. The heat index values were in the triple digits (fahrenheit) today and will be tomorrow again. Just looking at this image right now makes me hot. 

In most New York City subway stations, the temperatures are at times 10 degrees higher than the outside temperature making them heat traps in the dead of summer. The air hangs sullenly and it feels a bit like standing in an oven. A train will go by on the opposite track creating a momentary breeze but other than that it’s stifling and severely unpleasant.

"The New York City Subway is one of the oldest and most extensive public transportation systems in the world, with 468 stations in operation.The first underground line of the subway opened on October 27, 1904. In 2010, the subway delivered over 1.604 billion rides, averaging over five million on weekdays, over three million on Saturdays, and over two million on Sundays.

The New York City Subway is the fourth busiest rapid transit rail system in the world in annual ridership, after Tokyo’s, Moscow’s, and Seoul’s rapid transit systems. However it is still the busiest in the Western Hemisphere. It is one of the four systems in the U.S., along with portions of the Chicago ‘L’ system, PATH, and PATCO, to offer service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.” Source
