Last Friday Thursday night's gullywasher rainstorm predictably slowed or paralyzed several New York subway lines and stations; among others, the 125th Street station on the green line was blacked out from a lightning strike, and water flooded several tunnels and platforms. Gothamist brings us this fine commemoration of what it's like to stand next to a veritable torrent of crapwater, filtered through several rarefying layers of Penn Station infrastructure.
