Nostalgia/207 tour photos (42) to come next.

 

Note to moderators: I am not sure which forum these photos belong in, since they include some surface transit museum shots. But as the museum is in a subway station, I will put it here.

Yea but I kind wished that he would though the economic impact first before building the express way,but then again NYC was a corrupt city back then,so I don't really blame him, people that worked in big business in the city didn't really lived in city,that's way the express way was made.witch I think and this is just my option that cause the city to go bankrupt.

 

 

But to get me wrong Robert did great thing like building parks and pools.

Oh I remember those from Penn Station, and they had the big board too which had that ticking sound when it changed.

 

I loved that big board. It's a shame it's gone :)

Quality not too good, but I have a vid of it:

 

Nice pix from the TM @t Kings, ;)!

 

@Grand Concourse:

 

Yeah, I love that board too, too bad it is a goner, :)!
