Are you serious? You'd rather have the subway cars of the 70s instead of advertisements? Do you have any idea how much of a wreck and FILTHY the city and subway was then and how clean and put together it is now? Go to east new York or flatbush and stay there if you want gritty 70s culture, I'm pretty sure were all VERY happy with today's new York. Is the state of the city back then interesting? Absolutely I find it fascinating.

Listen buddy thats my personal opinion, if you dont like keep your mouth quiet i dont want to hear it. Im having fun with this thread to hear stories about the subways and city back then nothing is bad learning about a city history. If you dont like it i dont want to hear it that being said anyone else questions? or more pictures?

I remember the 4 used to be silver and red. I always used to wait for the red 4 train, it was my favorite. The 7 train if I recall was always the red kind.
