    Cow Subway Car Pics

    Anyone have any good pictures of the interior of the 4,5, or 6 line subway cars in NYC? Working on a new illustration and the ones I found online aren't too good. Just checking before I head down there the end of this week.

    I checked, yes its legal to take pics if you aren't "suspicious looking or doing anything suspicious". I plan on wearing a teddy bear costume so I don't look threatening. In my search I actually found schematic line drawings with details of all of the hardware and such... Good to know that stuff is public.

    you're going to look even more suspicious if you do that lol. A good idea is to bring a friend with you. When I find something interesting (like someone wearing something weird) I pretend to take a picture of my friend but am really taking a pic of the person.

    and did you try flickr? Flickr has good ones. And vimeo.com has videos showing the stations and inside the subways if you search for 'em

    If you still can't find reference, then there's a movie from 80s called Style Wars, you can watch it online. (it's a movie about the graffiti movementh, great movie btw.. you should see some interiors of the oldschool subway trains in there) Though it might be too low quality & oldschool.

    try doing a search for Forgotten NY. A website full of NYC related neighborhoods and whatnot should come up. May have images of subway trains.
