Great shots especially the gray scales. It makes me wonder how Manhattan would be if it still had the elevated lines running.

Thanks for the feedback, I really like taking b/w pictures. Very cool about your novel n-trizzy. Why did you choose Chicago as the setting?

Great Shots! Those platforms look really narrow.

Indeed. On the old stations, like the Damen stop above, the platforms are really narrow, sometimes only a few feet. The newer stations and rebuilt stations have much wider platforms to conform to ADA and such.

Well I love Chicago even though I'm a full blooded New Yorker. I wanted to do something in the heart of America and Chicago was the answer. It has a large subway system, it's very multi-racial, and it home to many crossover styles. Hope that answers you're question.

Sure does. I know what you mean because one of my friends is from NYC...but we only have about 11 miles of subway, the rest are at grade, elevated, or in the highway median. B) He calls everything the subway, whereas we call everything the 'L', even if it's underground.
