Why do the people in this rendering of the 96th Street Station on the 2nd Avenue Subway line appear to be transparent?
Because by the time the Second Avenue Subway is actually finished, all these stock photo models will be dead.
Because secretly, the MTA knows you can see through all of their bullshit.
Because by 2013, New York City will have banned all forms of fat, and every city resident will have literally become paper-thin.
Because the MTA will celebrate the opening of the Second Avenue Subway by providing X-Ray Vision Glasses to its riders.
Because they are all being erased from existence by the time paradox that Marty McFly has created by travelling back to 1955.
Because New Yorkers are so fucking transparent.
