The location is New York City. Specifically Roosevelt Avenue in the Jackson Heights section of Queens. Overhead is the almost 100 year old No. 7 elevated subway line, which ends in the distance, six more train stops further down, at Shea Stadium, home to the New York Mets baseball team.

This is the train that takes the local folks here in Jackson Heights, mostly latin and asian, to the “city,” as Manhattan is called to the natives, and to their daytime jobs. Underneath the “el” at street level are the many small shops and businesses that run all along the mighty steel structure.

The location is New York City and Roosevelt Avenue in the Jackson Heights section of Queens.

A Coca Cola truck makes a beautiful contrast driving through the otherwise drab colors of the rusted steel No 7 elevated subway above and the gray asphalt street below.

The location is New York City and the Sunnyside section of Queens. High above Queens Boulevard below is this elevated subway platform for the No. 7 line, with stairs leading down to street level.

There a two sets of tracks going each way, one for the express stops and one for the local stops. In the background is one of the many warehouses that dot the area.
