beloved A train

Yesterday marked the 75th anniversary of my dear and beloved A-train, longest subway line (31 miles!) in the great city of New York, cheapest route to JFK Airport ($2!), beginning at the very northern tip of Manhattan at 207th street (former home of a former huge crush of mine back in college days!), terminating all the way out at Far Rockaway (opening scene of overly melodramatic first novel by aforementioned crush!), immortalized in song by none other than Duke Ellington.

As one subway musician so very succinctly put it, "Ain't nothing like the A train."

A train, Ozone Park, Queens, c/o NY Times

And here I was expecting an Anacortes post.

Good ol' Atrain...
