Train station in black and white. York Street Station. Dumbo. Brooklyn, New York City.

We wait.

We wait for the city to move beneath our feet.

We wait for the universe to rise up from under the weight of our own gravitas; the movement of our world spinning on its axis.

And while we wait, the plaster crumbles, the paint peels, the train tracks rust; all suspended in their own decay like flies in amber.

We wait because it’s the only way to slow down as time pushes us forward further and further into the vast expanse of eternity.

We wait for the train to come.

Autumn in New York City. A view overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge. Brooklyn Bridge Park. Dumbo, Brooklyn.

On overcast autumn days, clouds cover the city in a dreamlike haze, wrapping everything in shades of grey and melancholy. Colorful trees and structures awaken the slumbering city from its somnambulistic state.

These last attempts of awakening are the ones remembered vividly before the winter’s shades of solitude set in only interrupted by bare branches and cool steel until the city fully awakens in the spring again.

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
