"It's just a gig."
Posted on 17th May at 3:04 PM, with 4,556 notes

the third avenue elevated train was torn down in 1955, and while the streets that it ran along were suddenly flooded with light, the manhattan landscape lost one of its most enduring features. bubley’s images were taken in 1951, a few years before the el train was demolished, and are very much a homage to the past.

the elevated trains were quickly forgotten, like the horse cars before them.

    These look like a description from a Mickey Spillane detective book. You can almost hear jazz and the narrator.
