    I seem to remember somebody posting a picture from National Geographic a while back that contained a picture of the inside of a Ney York subway car that was crushed. I did a search, but came up empty handed. I'm not sure if it was an article about the subway system or about graffiti or what, but if anybody knows what issue of National Geographic this photo appeared in, please let me know. I found out that my future father-in-law has every issue since like 1970 or something in his garage, and I don't feel like going through them all.
    Thanks.

    In one of the Newsweek Photojournalism books (I think Number two...) they have a picture of a small old man holding on for dear life in a crushed subway car. It has a caption like, "Jewish Banker's adventure through the NYC Subway."

    It is on Brooklyn...I have it..between 1980-1984...and there is also another one on the underground of NYC and they are going through one of the deepest tunnels in NYC and they find a SANE tag..in the very middle and go on to breifly explain the history of SANE and his myth like stature as a writer....and they are bewildered at the fact he walked that tunnel....good stuff.The Brooklyn issue has the photo that was used on the cover of FATCAP...a euro mag from about 93...

    I was going to just say wrong... but there may be two issues.
    The one I'm thining of is about Harlem.
    It's got a little girl with a freezie infront of a taged wall on the cover.

    “Growing Up in East Harlem,” National
    Geographic (May 1990) might be it.

    I found a website that has general listings of most issues. Here is what I found:
    May 1980 - Long Island
    May 1983 - Brooklyn
    September 1990 - New York City

    I'm going to did through the stacks this weekend, and I'll let you guys know if I find it. If you guys have it already and can dig it out before me, and you feel like posting the articles, please do. If not, I'll see what I can do next week.

    What issue is that SANE bit in?

    Wouldn't it be nice to have The Complete National Geographic (112 years) CD-ROM? "This 32-disk archive contains every article from every issue (1888-2000) photos, page maps, and even classic ads." ... and it's searchable.
     
  13. Wow, alkaline, do you have a link for that?

    I'd rather have the hardcopies!

    Imagine an entire room that's pure yellow from the spines of thousands of issues.
    ahhhh.....
