    These are great pics. I’ve got a great love of the Harlem station because not only is the train-watching great because of all the trains coming through, there is great people-watching there, too. However, I’m always rushing through so I never really noticed the beauty of the iron work before. I will be sure to take the time to appreciate that the next time I’m there.

    Track 3 has a great view of East 125th Street. Even when I’m riding from GCT, I always try to sit to the right in a middle car of the train, where I’ll get a good view when it stops in Harlem.

    It’s a shame that there’s such a problem with litter there. I was once there early on a Sunday (when the street stairs are closed and you have to go in through the building). There was a homeless man sleeping between the staircases who was almost buried in garbage while he was asleep.

    Ah, if only you could call ahead to the Popeye’s Fried Chicken on 125th and have your order meet the train. That would be something special!

    Nice pictures! Sometimes if you ask the police in the booth that you like trains and there to take videos and pictures they wouldn’t bother you. Though it depends if a nice guy is on duty or not.

    I totally understand they have to do their job and keep us safe, but sometimes the MTA police or NYPD can be douches with a nasty attitude even when being polite to them and talking to them in a calm manner.

    Just remember photography is totally legal on any platform and as long as you tell them what you’re doing and being polite they cannot do anything.

    Love the station house on the street. Sometimes I drive up Park Ave, off the Harlem Drive to visit my friend and of course to avoid the stupid traffic before the Triboro Bridge ramps and I try to take a glimps inside it.

    Love the pictures you provide.
