Train Station Exit

This is the train station gate I exit through every day as I travel home from work on the New York City subway. The gates are set up so nobody can access the station platform without swiping their MTA Metrocard. I always thought it looks kind of menacing, with it’s shiny metallic arms guiding people to the outside, as they take their turn in line with the beast.

    Many years ago when my mom was a young woman (1940s, maybe?), she got caught in one of those old floor-to-ceiling turnstiles, and was traumatized by the experience. I don’t know if the subway system has these anymore but they were kind of scary-looking.

    Oh, and I agree with Mike’s comment. ;-)
