The Far Rockaway-bound A train crosses through a wildlife preserve. Looking out the window of a train and seeing egrets nesting is one of the most unusual views you'll ever get from the subway!

Also, B/D/N/Q trains over the Manhattan Bridge, for a spectacular view of the harbor.

I have to vouch for the 7 train, particularly when it goes through Long Island City (about 45 Rd-Court Sq to 33 St). Anytime I can connect with a 7 train, I take the opportunity.

The 4 Line passing through the gritty, run down, crime-ridden, graffiti filled tenements of the west Bronx.

I think the "A" line to Far Rock is an amazing view !! Definite must see in my book. 7 is a great line as well

Ok, buildings. Tenements makes it sound more slumish.

Go see Willets Point from the 7 train. The stark comparison between its junkyards, unpaved streets and CitiField right across the street is amazing. If you go inside of Willets Point, you won't believe you are in America (I'm not trying to be funny ... it's really sad).

the number 2 and 5 train between third avenue and jackson avenue. Look towards the Manhattan skyline while decending towards underground. Also the astoria bound N trains have a scenic view of Manhattan.

The F train? traveling parallel to the Williamsburg Bridge; going downtown on the el from Delancey Street to Brooklyn. Great Manhattan views. The Manhattan Bridge same deal, I think that may be the D line.

F train has some pretty good elevated segments once you get past downtown (Brooklyn) towards Prospect Park. 7 Train into Manhattan is probably the coolest I've seen though.
