The Long Island Railroad transports thousands of commuters each day. No two people are the same with each person commuting to different destinations for different reasons.
This project, consisting of pictures and quotes from commuters, would capture the essence and commutes of various people. Questions to ask would be “where are you going,” “which train are you taking,” “how often do you ride the LIRR,” and other various questions. If there is a severe delay, emotions and potential tensions flying high would make for great content.
Taking pictures at a station would not be much of an issue as a few projects for JRN 215 were shot on location at Huntington and Floral Park with no resistance from anyone. As for the taking pictures on the train, permission may be needed and verification of who to contact on the Long Island Railroad for this permission will be looked into.
Above all, this would be like “Humans of New York,” but centered around the Long Island Railroad and those who rely on it each day.
