Despite playing canvas to a long list of talented writers, the IND (Independent) and BMT (Brooklyn Manhattan Transit) lines have been underrepresented in graffiti history. This is now rectified with a collection of high-quality images from the 1970s and 80s that capture works by heavyweights from the BMT like Lee, Mono, Iz The Wiz, Baby168, OE3, P13, and many others.

From Coney Island to Queensboro Plaza and everywhere in between, these nostalgic images capture elevated subway scenes, stations, and subway yards and offer a glimpse through time at Brooklyn and Queens in the height of the NYC subway graffiti era. This truly amazing lineup also features early writers on the IND lines like Pistol, Piper, A'train, and IN, in addition to obscure names and throw-ups from these undocumented corridors.

This is an ideal volume of subway art for graffiti artists, fans, historians, and students looking for rare photos on the letter lines.
