Deutsch: Der Bahnhof 156th Street an der IRT Third Avenue Line im Januar 1974, wenige Monate nach Einstellung des Gesamtverkehrs.
Das Foto zeigt die typische Anordnung einer local station an aufgeständerten Streckenabschnitten.
Außerdem sieht man den einsetzenden Verfall der New Yorker U-Bahn. Das Dach ist an zwei Stellen undicht, und am Bahnsteig gegenüber gibt es die ersten Erscheinungen von Graffiti, welches die MTA über das kommende Jahrzehnt hinaus beschäftigen wird. Ob die Lampen wie sonst so oft gestohlen oder mutwillig zerstört worden sind, ist hier unklar.
English: 156th Street station on the IRT Third Avenue Line in 1974, just a few months after the line was closed down.
This picture shows the typical track arrangement of a three-track local station on an elevated line with two side platforms and canopies halfway down the station.
Moreover, one can see the beginning of the slow decline of the New York City Subway. The roof leaks, and on the opposite platform, the graffiti that would plague the MTA for the next decade has begun to appear. It is not clear whether the lamps have been stolen or intentionally destroyed by vandals, as frequently occurred.
