    Hahahaha . . . Ohh the seedy awesomeness of it all. I haven't been there since i was 8 but i remember it well.
    Indeed you can usually tell when the concepts of democracy and citizenship are weakening. There is an increase in the role of charity and in the worship of volunteerism. These represent the élite citizen's imitation of noblesse oblige; that is, of pretending to be aristocrats or oligarchs, as opposed to being citizens.

    Waaarrrriiiorrrrrrrrsss come out to plaaayaaay.

    Good to see a great film being honoured in the neck of the woods it made famous. The last few photos of the train line look like they should have some early 1980's gangs hanging around looking for a rumble just like the film.

    Regrets, I've had a few; But then again, too many to mention.

    I see from the first few pics you've had a nice ride on the Sea Beach Line! Oh, and they haven't half done a nice job on Stillwell Av station.
