Crashed track status indicator at Penn Station

I was detained by the police for taking this picture of a crashed display at Penn Station in New York. The person reflected in the monitor is an undercover police detective who is approaching to tell me to stop photographing it. He and his partner detained me for about five minutes, looked through my photographs, questioned me about my photography and my trip to New York, and made me show ID.
