Project Of The Week : Your train station

They are a point in a daily commute of countless people. Utilitarian, they must provide for efficient movement of people in crowds. Seemingly vacant at one minute and then teeming the next, with the hustle and bustle of those determined to get from here to there. The ordinary and repetitious trip of a commuter can lead to blank faces, seeming drones programmed to catch the 7:15 without interaction with others, without emotion.

Yet they have also been the scene of emotional hellos and goodbyes of embraces and tears. An important milestone in a departure or declaration of independence or a the happy relief of a return after a long absence.

The Project of the Week is to map your local train station, bus depot, or other public transit center.
