MTA Sacrificial Rituals

I originally entered this in a 'Guess Where NYC' pool on Flickr, but I will spare you the chore of having to guess this subway station. This station is the Carroll Street Station that services the G and F trains on the IND Culver line that heads to Coney Island. The lights you see here are pretty unique for a New York subway station. I have speculated on the purpose for them, although I suspect is has to do something with the fact that once the train leaves this station, it becomes elevated high above the Gowanus and Park Slope neighborhoods of Brooklyn; that or MTA is engaging in sacrificial rituals (in the form of service and personnel cuts ;) ) of sorts.
