    A Glimpse Into New York’s Lovely Abandoned Subway Station

    The forgotten City Hall station was the original terminal of New York’s subway system. It opened on the evening of October 27, 1904, along with 27 other Interborough Rapid Transit (I.R.T.) stations up to 145th Street on the west side. The inauguration began with a private ride conducted by Mayor George McClellan and ended with a fascinated public standing in awe of the strange new technology.

    At the Gutter: Nothing Ape Is Strange To Me

    culturalgutter:

    Carol writes about relatability via Planet of the Apes.

    I’m surrounded by a stack of comics and one illustrated novel all set in the same world as that 1968 film, The Planet of the Apes and my head is swirling with Cicero.  I’ve been thinking about why I prefer one comic to the other, what exactly it means for a character to be relatable and what it means to be a person. As an ape, nothing ape is strange to me.
