Comedian and Gothamist video editor/producer Jeff Seal recently went out to the Brooklyn High Street station in Brooklyn Heights to see if he could actually clean the dirty, grimy subway platform using household cleaning products and a bit of elbow grease. Check it out!
So there we were, looking down at our chosen section of platform, hoping to reveal what was at the bottom of these layers of grime. We guessed the first coating was from the '70s, at least, but this could go back as far as 1933 when the station first opened. The dirt is really baked in there—so much so that the surface seemed impenetrable. No amount of elbow grease seemed like it was going to make a dent, but Jeff got down there and gave it a shot.
