#496 - NY Subway video

Courtesy of Katie. Ripped off from another blog called Cup of Jo. Sorry if you can't see the whole frame but if you double click on the video while playing, it should go to full screen Coincidentally on this day (November 1st) in NYC History: in 1918, 97 passengers were killed and more than 200 hurt in the worst subway accident in city history, when a train smashes into a tunnel wall along the old Brighton Beach line. The accident occurs when an untrained motorman who had crossed a picket line to fill in for striking train workers loses control of the train near the Malbone Street station – now the Prospect Place station on the D and Q lines.
