West Fourth Street Station, NYC – Old Chewing Gum and Conduits

It’s a big station, and this is not too far from the surface, but it is still deeper underground than most graves are. It’s not far from where a token booth – as they used to be called – used to be. I hate how they are replacing manned token booths with machines. I am sure that gum gets scraped off of subway floors on some sort of scheduled basis, even if it’s not that often. I mean, I could be wrong and it only gets scraped when a supervisor is walking through and it appears particularly gross. But, my guess is that there is some kind of maintenance routine. What I’m getting at, though, is that I think this particular area is bypassed. That gum, those particular pieces of gum look quite old, almost fossilized. It’d be interesting to do gum forensics on them and see if they might be some defunct brand. Any volunteers?
