      This is nuts. I'd always thought the walls of subway tunnels were black, but I guess it's just decades of dirt!

      It's outstanding the amount of work that has to be done to get the trains working again - thanks for keeping New York going!

      Hard to believe it's a subway tunnel, looks more like a sewer.

      I can't believe the MTA missed this perfect opportunity to replace the trains with fiberglass boats, and line the walls with pirate skeletons.

      Yo ho ho ho, a commuter's life for me!!

      Wonder if that is salt water. Taste it!

      It looks like the set of Phantom of the Opera.
