E Pluribus Unum

E Pluribus Unum

“E Pluribus Unum” or One Out Of Many, the traditional motto of the United States. Let’s not forget that out of many peoples, races, religions, languages, and ancestries has emerged a single people and nation, and let’s hope that this nation will not forgo this principle in the coming year. This image is of the brand new 86th street station of the brand new Second Ave Subway which opened today Jan. 1, 2017.

Beauty of an Era Long Ago

The City Hall subway station, built in the Romanesque Revival style featuring Guastavino tile, skylights, colored glass tilework and brass chandeliers, opened in 1904 as the showpiece of New York's new subway system. The station closed in 1945 to be abandoned ever since.  The space shown here used to be the entrance/exit of the station with a beautifully decorated booth straight ahead.
