Day 340: A Conductor’s-Eye View of the 6 Train

June 6th · No Comments

The 6 Train can get mighty dull in the middle of the day when there’s no children breakdancing for money or preachers yelling in your particular car. It was in one of these off moments that I sidled up behind the conductor and pointed my camera through the conductor’s compartment, to see what he sees.

What I enjoy most is the transition between the station, filled with squealing brakes and people and the cheery announcement to Stand Clear of the Closing Doors, Please, and the tunnel, where the passing points of light in the darkness make me feel like I’m traveling, not under Lexington Avenue, but through interstellar space.

Does the video remind you of your own New York adventures? What does it recall for you, earthly or unearthly? Share.
