Construction and maintenance is a constant thing in New York or any major city. So I’m always freaked out when big changes happen. Though the big changes I’m referring to in this comic aren’t really all that big. It’s really just what amounts to construction related things being taken down. Suddenly hallways are wider, or the outside is a lot less claustrophobic because scaffolding has been taken down. What always bothers me is when I know something has changed but despite seeing a certain fixture for weeks (if not months) I don’t remember what is missing. But yes, at a subway station I frequent the hallway I enter into is now much wider.
