Title : New York's forgotten substations - The power behind the subway
Authors : Christopher Payne
Publisher : Princeton Architectural Press
Year : 2002
ISBN : 1568983557

Description :
For almost a century, the 125,000 pounds rotary converters and related equipment of the substations remain largely unchanged, but in 1999 the last manually operated substation was shut down.
Since then they have been systematically dismantled and sold as scrap.
In 1997, Christopher Payne was introduced to the substations by the NYCTA's Power Department and began to photograph, draw and write the history of these amazing buildings and their machines before a part of the industrial America and an other landmarks of New York are completely gone.
