American photographer Danny Lyon was born here in Brooklyn in 1942. When he was 21 he published his first photographs, and never looked back. Over the next 50 years, Lyon would capture many subjects for many personal projects, and publications, but one of his favorite things to shoot was always the New York City streets. In this vintage photograph from the photographer, take a peek at a graffiti-filled 2 train as it rolls through the South Bronx in 1980.
