But it’s not a subway entrance

May 30th, 2010

It's a tunnel leading to the other side of the street

    It does look just like a subway entrance, except that it’s too clean, and there are no people!

    Some of the subway entrances in NYC do the very same thing, but this is much more “civilized.”

      I’m so glad the word “civilized” is in scare quotes.

        You got me Barbara Kiviat. It was almost 4 in the morning, and I think the dyslexia center was more awake than the rest of my brain. I was thinking about how NYC subways can be less than civilized (with the dirt, noise, crowds, etc.), and thus the misplaced quotes.

    To be honest, this is much cooler! :D

  3. George Broze says:

    In the UK, the definition of a “subway” is “a tunnel to the other side of the street.”

    So peaceful and looks clean when you take this picture. The benefits of living in the countryside.
    A lot of these are seen at the major streets of Makati City here in the Philippines where one has to pass through this to get to another building. Somehow, good for those who like to walk early in the morning where the streets are busy and crowded. There are telephone booths and ad materials/billboards along the walls…

    I used to work at Fiesta Foods (Grocery store) right next to this. I’ve had people asking was there a subway back in the days.. Not many people use this, but on busy weekends when the highway (Hwy 61) then people will use it so they don’t have to wait for the lights or traffic.

    This is a really awesome idea! I wish we didn’t have so many earthquakes in So. Cal. so we could have them too! What happens when it rains, though? Does this get flooded?

    Careful when going through. These are daaaannnnngggerrrrouuuuuus! Maybe not so much in this part of the country. But in NYC, you’d get jumped 5 out of 17 times. Safe travels.
