Greg's shot at the 42nd Street Shuttle Track 4 was taken from a walkway that thousands of New Yorkers utilize every day. I have used it myself and I always take a good look at the infrastructure changes to make this particular subway line straight instead of curved. It is probably the only place on the system where you can stand safely and legally in a subway tunnel rather than on a station platform. That probably is a lot of it's appeal.

The walkway is steel plate that can be removed for maintenance. Shooting hand held or illegal use of a tripod would likely result in some vibration from people walking by or the wind blast of the passing train.

I must admit while I always found this view fascinating, it has always looked pretty nasty and that's why I never shot here.

Way to go Greg!
