Aretha Franklin Street

A shot of the subway platform at the Franklin Street stop. When Aretha Franklin died riders put up signs changing Franklin Street to Aretha Franklin Street, as an homage. Apparently the MTA added the signs saying respect.

When Echo had offices in Tribeca this was our subway stop. So I have intense nostalgia for this stop. Those were such great, exciting days. I was going to say, “not that these aren’t great days too,” except they’re not! I will hope for greatness again soon.
