NY subway

As entranhas de Nova Iorque nos anos 70 eram tudo menos glamourosas. O que faz delas mais interessantes.
 
subway 1970s
 
Riding the subway in 1970 only cost 30 cents — a dramatic hike from the previous fare of 15 cents. Fare increases usually caused ridership to plunge.
 
In 1975, visitors at New York City's airports received pamphlets welcoming them to "Fear City." The skull-emblazoned documents advised tourists "not to take the subways under any circumstances."
 
Robbery was so pervasive on the Lexington Avenue Express that is was nicknamed the "Mugger's Express."
 
To discourage crime, the Transit Police closed the rear half of subway trains between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. in order to make cars easier to monitor.
