A curving segment of the elevated train above the intersection of Westchester Ave. and Sheridan Expressway, South Bronx, NY. A train is rounding the bend, while 4 MTA workers in hard hats and orange vests stand safely on a lower platform. Beneath the "el" can be seen portions of various bildings, ground floor businesses and parked cars.
Gallery Label: 
This painting documents the South Bronx as it was being transformed from the burnt-out area of the 1970s to a burgeoning antique and second hand furniture trading neighborhood. It is one of the non-Manhattan neighborhoods where the "El" still runs.
