To the city for 3 days

Recommended Posts

late last year I had planned to print a full page color book of the subway but a lot of the images got lost somehow between transferring and to my pc.

 

Anyways I had planned to do Monday/Tuesday then go again on Saturday..

 

Or go Saturday with Julio here and do some rail fanning.

 

I really have not ridden the BMT lines much so I had plans to stop at a few stations on the J line and L.

 

any other good stations to visit during the day?
