Chambers Street Subway Station

Chambers Street Subway Station

Should be named the Chambers of Horror Subway Station. Looks like a left over movie set from an old Vincent Price film like the Secret Laboratory Chambers of Dr. Phibes! As I was sitting waiting in a train that I thought would never arrive I recalled that old TV show Beauty and the Beast starring Ron Perlman!


Any moment as I awaited the mystery train dozens of denizens would emerge from subterranean underground chambers and caverns beckoning me to join them!  I work the night shift usually arriving at the J train Chambers street station a little after midnight. The trains run so much slower after midnight. Cleaning, power-washing, maintenance and repairs. Subway workers doing after dark what cannot be done during daylight hours. That night as the platform seemed extra deserted. Even the regular unusual suspects of homeless, vagabonds and vagrants were not there.  Sitting on the hard wooden benches.  I wondered who  or what could be down there? Abandoned trains from the nascent years of long discarded 20th Century subway cars?  Zombie Train conductors and Motormen still driving ancient decrepit out of service trains?  Secret Oracles and Seers ala The Matrix seeking the Chosen One?

Then as my sleep glazed over eyes swept across the opposite platform I saw or thought I saw a faint glimmer of a returned gaze. Shaking my drowsy head and blinking several times my eyes seemed to travel of their own free will back to an especially darkened area and I swore I could make out two silver eyes staring back at me.

Just then the thought crossed my mind, “Small mutants with Silver Eyes have great effects.”

Then I thought of all those who had fallen, were pushed or jumped onto the tracks?  Ones who in violent deaths left behind their fragrant sillage. A Melancholy of neither being in this world or the next. Displaced spirits engaging in mindless repetition seeking results only they will understand.

That night the J train seemed even slower in arriving than usual. Then as if out of the mists a train pulled into the station.  But where had it come from?  None of the expected rumbling or screeching of rails to track.  I boarded the mysterious train and as the doors closed behind me I knew this ride was not going to be the Polar Express.


Hmmmm……… A Potential Creepypasta in the making!

Soulful Strut J Train Subway Line ~~ Brooklyn, New York

Local/The Daily Post



#Brooklyn    #SoulfulStrut

Today’s Soulful Strut took me from Rockaway Avenue over to Broadway along where the J subway train runs over to Lexington which is just a couple of blocks beyond Gates Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.

So far today I’ve had a yogurt, banana, and am now having my steamed broccoli & cauliflower mix. While I was out for my Soulful Strut I stopped at the grocery store to buy some healthy food items. Purchased two Coconut Waters.  Walking exercise is a wonderful thing!
