Underneath the Tracks

You only have to wave a camera in their direction.  Whether it's Roosevelt beneath the 7, or the nether worlds of sub-expressway Third, the buildings and the empty lots frame themselves with ironwork and fractured light.  Even the most ordinary resonate.  These are on 31st Street, Queens.

What a wonderful link - thanks!
I think we need a new set of MTA subway poems. The current selection is vapid. Suggestions?

Yes, new subway poems definitely needed. Great idea for a summer series! Mind if I borrow it? A cross-blog dialog?

I'd be very happy if you took this on - this has been bugging me for a long time. I'll send a few suggestions though ...

Great, I'll kick it off soon and look forward to your suggestions. Get ready, Cultural Commissar of the MTA!
