New York subway in 1986

On a hot summer day in 1986, YouTuber, RailroadPacific, made a round trip through the USA and Canada. The starting point was New York. So he filmed some scenes in Manhattan through 42nd St & Timesquare. The result of this 10 minute observational documentary looks exactly how movies depict the underground railways from those times. The entire time, you can’t help but wait for a lady to get mugged only to be saved by Batman.

These were the days in New York City where gangs and street walkers owned what’s now the largest toursit attraction NYC has to offer, Times Square. Never, ever complain about the NYC subway system again. It can (and was) much worse.
