This book is a celebration of the subway, the stations and the trains that travel in all weather and at all times of day or night. Although a number of other photographers contributed their images to the book, transit employee Steve Zabel’s photographs dominate. Steve Zabel was an avid photographer of the subway as well as a New York City Transit employee for over 20 years, documenting New York and the subway system in a way that only “insiders” would know. For those people who love trains, transportation and cityscapes, this is a must-have book.
