On The F-Train In Bk

F-Train Cantilever Bridge3F-Train Cantilever Bridge2I took these pictures on the F-train in Brooklyn, at the Smith/ 9th streets station. The steel trusts look more like instalation art than support members. Its Industrial Art functioning as anF-Train Cantilever Bridge1 MTA bridge. The netting along the bottom of the pictures is construction support netting, this is one of the grimiest, unkept strips of the entire subway system. Right now they’re gutting out the entire trackbeds from the two center tracks. That runs for about 3 stops (1+ mile), from Carroll to 4th Ave/9th Street… Without all of the gravel the track beds look like roadways, it’s cool. Hopefully these workers could deal with the rusty stations and the stalagmites and stalactites growing on the floor and ceiling. At least I can find beauty in all this dilapidation.
