    Default Looking for subway arcade photos!!

    Does anyone, or know anyone who might, have photos of the arcades that were in the Times Square and 14th St. Union Square subway stations in the 1970's?

    I assume you mean this kind of arcade:


    Not this:



    I wasn't aware that those two (Union Sq./Times Sq.) stations had arcades or vaulted ceilings (like City Hall station), but would be interested in finding some pics.

    The NYPL archives have some pre-1970s subway station photos

    There is also the Transit Museum in Grand Central, where you can make an appointment to view their extensive archival materials.

    The arcades sold hot dogs, orange juice, and salsa records.
