This photograph is one of my favorite images of the NYC subway in our collection. Taken by photographer Lucille Fornasieri Gold, it depicts subway passengers on an unknown line, around 1985. I love the varied facial expressions on all of the passengers in this photographs. This photograph is from the Lucille Fornasieri Gold photographs collection that comprises 93 black-and-white and color photographs taken by Gold, a street photographer, between 1968 and 2008. This collection is fully digitized and available online here.
