See Eerie Photos of New York City’s Abandoned Subway Stations

In case you missed it — there’s a storm a-brewin’! Hurricane Sandy is lurching her way up the coast, heading for us all. Yesterday, the MTA announced it was shutting down trains in NYC at 7 pm and buses at 9pm. Here are some pictures from their official Flickr page taunting us with how delightfully empty all the stations are right now.

The pictures are of some of the system’s busiest stations — Penn Station, Grand Central and Times Square. Usually they’re full of tourists, commuters and street musicians who insist on doing really bad covers of Bryan Adams songs. In these pictures, you would never even guess how strong the smell of urine and human desperation is in these places. Sigh.
