An interesting post from our fellow bloggers at Curbed, Nick Benson has compiled an array of photographs of rail systems traversing many Cities across the globe in his Railfan Atlas. Of particular interest to us are the Subway images of NYC across its 5 Boroughs.

Urban geography is defined not only by buildings but by the vast infrastructure connecting people across The City’s terrain. The subway is the lifeblood of New York. The experience is often mired by the difficulties of traveling so close to so many in this large Metropolis. But oftentimes, moments of beauty break through to give pause in The Frenzied City. Enjoy.
