Hi everyone!! Debby here from the Big Apple!! I'm getting to know a new computer today and haven't decided which of the old photos should go where, so I'm posting examples of my most recent photo shoot and I thought you might like to do the same. Please use your newest photos, ok? Mine are from a trip to Manhattan and a viewing of the new Fulton Center subway station yesterday.
"The glass-and-steel prism called Fulton Center began life as a public-transit labyrinth, a spaghetti-bowl tangle of dimly-lit corridors, narrow switchbacks and baffling signage cobbled together out of five subway stations built in the early 1900s.
A century later, and more than a decade after part of the Lower Manhattan subway complex was destroyed in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the nine subway lines that converge on Fulton Street and Broadway have been knit together anew. New Yorkers, accustomed to thinking of transit hubs like Penn Station and Times Square as places to suffer through, will find on Monday morning a kind of Crystal Palace, crowned by a dome that funnels daylight two stories below ground."
