I like the way this video starts, with the woman trying to figure out if the elevator is working at 14th Street. We leave her just as it arrives.
Then comes the image of the coffee cup, complete with sip top, as the main character/symbol of rush hour. The train moves through the tunnel, passing/bypassing 23rd Street (a local stop), and continuing on to 34th Street-Penn Station where the station sign, bold in black & white, falls right into the center of the frame.
Subways can be claustrophobic and disheartening but they are also marvelous, entertaining, and with a view that can be mesmerizing.
