The subway has its own climate. The temperature, the density of the air, the quality of the light are all are different than above ground. The system also has its own wind patterns. I love the intense physicality of the breeze that precedes a train bearing down a tunnel. This video captures that blast of air as it moves through the hair of a selection of people at the Bedford Avenue stop of the L train.
