When the MTA closed its first station platforms in decades, we made a point of being the first in.
Why? Because it’s expect, and at the time, not really contested anyway. Despite what a few pretenders in goofy outfits tried to let on, no one was hitting the tunnels as hard as us. Perhaps their book publisher was fooled, but no one else.
Yeah, the graff kids tagged and bagged nearly every subway tunnel years ago, and homeless folks were living down here for decades before being given the boot in the 90’s, but that’s history and this is the new school. While everyone else was sleepin’ and droolin’ on City Hall stop being open for a scant few hours in subway centennial celebration, we hitched up with the usual track gang and did the smack thang on this freshly born abandoned platform. LTV: In First.
Absolutely nothing has changed it seems since this spot was ‘abandoned’ just weeks ago… In a city subway as busy and 24/7/365 as NYC’s, having a lit abandoned platform to yourself is a nice treat…
