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!
