(May 22) Trains and escalators.

goodbye forever, waldbaums
The last can. Now, they are truly gone to me

This hat now available

into the ground
Amtrak’s part of the station makes even less sense than does the LIRR’s

where the trains are
We stand in the middle of the aisle an hour or so before we get to go down

upstate, again
After this, it’s a very long train ride

(Feb 7) Visited my mother for her birthday, since I was sick my whole time there for Thanksgiving.

my bed is the place to be
They are with me now more than ever

Six and a half hours of train travel is about to begin

probably not an option, regardless
I wonder how long it would take to fly upstate

penn station
From the LIRR to Amtrak

Four and a half hours in this seat.

(December 15) I sleep on the train, he sleeps in the backhoe.

get yer ho back on
There’s some kind of construction going on here.
What is that I see there?…. is it, … could it be…?

Sleeping in the backhoe. You think? Your call.

which side of this hole is sunny?
Sunnyside Yards.

train yard
Amtrak soils New York with Jersey Transit’s trains here.

sunny side down
It’s sort of the waiting room. For some reason this makes more sense than sending them back to Jersey. Probably money changes hands.

I think I was only in the city twice in December.

amtrak train board
Viza and I took a short stroll through Amtrak’s part of Penn Station.

I found some more subway mosaics to add to my collection.

(August 14) And finally… the footbridge.

bruckner footbridge
The approach

Amtrak rolls like that here.

under and over the highways
Looking ahead

nuts and bolts
The stuff bridges are made of

bruckner traffic
This bridge crosses just about everything except the water.
Had it been further back, it would have crossed that as well.

uninspired graffitti
Looking back

bridge stairs
And down the other side. I found these steps particularly difficult to climb because of their layout.

this message brought to you by the robots of puerto rico
Nobody expects robots in the Bronx.

catching rays
The outside of the Hunts Point Ave. 6 Station.

fancy subway exterior hides the crappy interior
They should have spent more money on the inside of the station instead of the outside.

hoe ave.
Who you callin a hoe?
