To me the subway service of NY city is really good. I bought the week pass, for 29 dolar which allows you take take the number you want subways that period.
About Station and concourse
Many stations have mezzanines. These allow for passengers to enter from multiple entrances and proceed to the correct platform without having to cross the street before entering. They also allow for crossover between the uptown and downtown platforms.
Passengers enter a subway station through stairs towards station booths and vending machines to buy their fare, which is currently stored in a MetroCard. After swiping the card at a turnstile, customers continue to the platforms. Some subway lines in northern Manhattan and the other boroughs have elevated tracks to which passengers climb up to the platforms and station houses via stairs, escalators, or elevators.
Many stations are decorated with intricate ceramic tile work, some of it dating back to 1904 when the subway first opened. The subway tile artwork tradition continues today.
The "Arts for Transit" program oversees art in the subway system. Permanent installations, such as sculpture, mosaics, and murals; photographs displayed in lightboxes encourage people to use mass transit. In addition, commissioned art displayed in stations and "art cards", some displaying poetry, are in many of the trains themselves in unused advertisement fixture slots.

Yesterday I made similar photo (but less dynamic) ath the underground railway station of Zurich airport. By the way, your "Umbrela" photo is excellent. I put some comments to it.
I like the feeling of the speed. It nice that you did included also the waitng people. Nicely done.

J'aime beaucoup la construction de l'image. Le filé est excellent et le train forme une superbe diagonale dans l'image. La gestion de la lumière est excellente.

O metrô novaiorquino é muito eficiente... te leva prá onde quiser, não é mesmo?!?! Mas é bem feinho tb... rsrsrsrsrs as estações não são nada bonitas, porém são seguras, na maior parte do dia e da noite!
Curti o efeito de movimento obtido... ótima ideia e bela foto!

Great picture. Lots of movements. You've caught the essence of NY subway. Moving fast from one point to the other. Nice point of view and great speed.

gosto do movimento aqui. A bandeira que apesar do flow pode ser vista adiciona um detalhe interessante, assim como as pessoas paradas na plataforma.

excellent shot, was not a simple click to the lack of light that you had available, but overall I like it very much...
