Maybe it's where you find the depressed town trains?
Maybe it originated as two words. An adjective and then a noun. Email was once "e-mail". The hyphen has been dropped. Now it is "email". Catch my drift?
Spelling wasn't a biggie back in the day.I just love those mosaics.
K: Depressed trains run all throughout Manhattan. It's not specific to geography.Myopic: Welcome! I belive that's the best answer. NYC has many revamped spellings. "Bowery" was once "Bowerie."Annie: Click on that pic for details of the mosaic. The NY subway system is chocked FULL of beautiful mosaics!
It may have also been a stylistic choice...for spacing etc.
Surely it should be spelt; Doon Toon?Mosaics make the most smashing tiles..reet?
I'm with anniegirl, have always loved the subway mosaics
through the miracle of modern pain medication, i now have a terrible earworm. somehow, Sheena Easton's "Morning Train" is stuck in my brain. the mosaics are lovely. the song? notsomuch...
Nurse H: That’s a very astute observation. Do you hang out with many graphic designers? ;-)Jimmy: Wouldn’t it be great if you walked into the 42nd Street subway station and saw Downtown written out “Doon Toon” in a beautiful mosaic? Nurse M: I’ll try to post more subway mosaic pics, but they frown on taking photos in the subway. Terrorism and whatnot. Daisy: That’s so funny! When I look at his post, I think of Rod Stewart’s “Downtown Train,” which is a much hipper song.
i'm blaming the drugs, man... Sheena Easton = BAD TRIP.
Pardon me boy, is that the downtown train? Eh, not as catchy.

One minute I'm living in the epicenter for the heroin trade in NYC, the next I'm commuting four hours a day. What hit me?
