U-Bahn

The underground subway system in Berlin, Germany: the U-Bahn. Like any major city, civilians use the U-Bahn as their main mode of transportation. The Germany subway system, however, is vastly different than that of my home, New York. The U-Bahn stations are colorful and clean. Upper levels feature grocery stores, flower shops, and boutiques. On the platform, food vendors are selling treats right by the tracks. Compared to the MTA subway system, which is grimy, dirty, and lacks any sort of livelihood, the Germany U-Bahn is well-maintaned. In the U.S., no one would ever buy sushi as they are waiting for a train. The Germans found a way to make their daily commute happier and more convenient. This photo series documents different vendors found in the U-Bahn stations.
