Inside The 53rd St. Power Substation in NYC

On Saturday, I checked out the substation at 53rd Street and 8th Avenue, across from Roseland Ballroom for Open House New York. As a member of the Transit Museum, I get first dibs on cool tours like this and the inaccessible Old City Hall Subway Station. This substation was part of the original IRT subway line and was built in 1904. It's still in use and is currently undergoing a renovation.

Abandoned Trolleys in Red Hook, Brooklyn

Did you know that in 1930, 1,800 trolleys served Brooklyn alone? Photographer Christoffer Delsinger (who discovered the double rainbow Bushwick airplane!) went to check out the abandoned trolleys in Red Hook, a remnant of a more recent past than you might imagine.
