The New York City Subway is one of the most used public transportation systems in the world. Today, it is a lot cleaner and more high tech than ever before. Here’s what the famous 42 st subway station looked like in 1986. Some of it is so much the same, and some is so different. It’s like stepping into a time machine. I’m glad the graffiti isn’t as bad today as back then. It’s out of control.
