New York Monday: 125th Street

January 9, 2012 | Filed Under Harlem, New York Monday 

I took this photo when I was standing on the above-ground subway platform, waiting for the uptown #1 train.  This image is just a small portion of 125th street, which goes from the east side to the west (and vice versa).  It looks very quiet and almost abandoned, but this is a very deceptive photo.  It’s normally very busy on this crosstown street.  There  is a lot of pedestrian and automobile traffic.  

This street is sometimes referred to as the Capital of Black America, the Gateway of Black America and the Main Street of Harlem.   I’ve post a few photos of 125th, which you can find here, here, here and here.

Happy New York Monday, everyone!  Have a great new week!

  3. It is indeed a bit strange to see a NY street with hardly ay traffic. Glad to see you are having some nice weather there. Have a great week!

  4. Paz, great vantage point photo! It’s incredible what a little “height” will do for your shot! :)

  5. have a great week!

  6. Hi Simona: It was especially strange to see this street seemingly quiet but I think that only lasted for a minute or two. Probably after I took the photo the cars and buses zipped by. 😉

    Hi Bella: Oh, yes! A little bit of height can make a big difference. 😉

    Hi Kat: Thanks!

    Have a great week, everyone!

    Paz xoxo
