Fade Into You

Astoria Boulevard Subway Station. Astoria, Queens. Photo by Rick Stachura. December 8, 2019.



You live your life, you go in shadows

You’ll come apart and you’ll go blind.


Some kind of night into your darkness

Colors your eyes with what’s not there.



Lyrics from “Fade Into You” by Mazzy Star, 1993.

Served by the N/W lines, the station is being stripped to its girders and completely refurbished. When work is complete, the station will have the first elevators ever installed on the Astoria line. The path from Queensboro Plaza to Ditmars Boulevard has been without them since it opened  — back in 1917.
