Never-Before-Seen Photos of the New York City Subway System from 1981

Rare photos of the New York City Subway in 1981

Back in 1981, a young photographer named Christopher Morris spent 6 months documenting the plight of New York City’s subway system, which much like the city at the time, was overrun by crime, graffiti, and litter. Morris, now a successful photojournalist, recently rediscovered an unpublished cache of his subway photos. You can view 15 of the photos over at TIME LightBox.
