I’ve always been inspired by photos taken on public transport.  The sense of intimacy in such a small place with such a diverse cross-section of a cities people make for some of the finest street work around.  Photos taken on the New York subway in the 80’s have such a special grit that just can’t be reproduced today.  The combination of grafitti, metal,  tough characters and film just can’t be beat.  I’ve been to New York and I can see it’s appeal, but a lot of that grit has gone, but I could still feel what these guys saw.
