6 Train, Whitlock Avenue

6train

“The rickety railway, which ran on steel stilts over their heads in the Bronx and dived into a narrow hole to go to Manhattan was part of their world, like the stars or wind…Tracks flew under them; apartment houses careened drunkenly by…the waited-for lovely moment came with the squeals and howls of a lost soul careening into hell, the express rushed crazily downhill into the darkness.” -Herman Wouk, The City Boy (1948)
