"Just wanted to let you know that I received the 2014 Subway Calendar. Beautiful photos as always."
- Bob Hasselbach (PA) January 16, 2014

“You have the best subway calendars in the country.”
Luis L. (MT) January 3, 2013

"Received the 2012 edition the other day and as always, it outdoes all of its predecessors by a country mile. I can't get over the quality of the photography and printing as well as the choice of subject matter. Totally captivating. I found my first edition of the calendar in a bookstore in the King of Prussia (PA) Mall in around 1997 and ordered all succeeding editions directly every year since. One time you sent out a blurb looking to sell off leftover stock. I bought one of each. Unfortunately, the 1993 addition was out of stock. Anyhow, my collection covering 1994 through 2012 is one of my most prized possessions. I do find myself going through them all every so often because they bring back such fond memories of my travels".
Steve F. (MD) November 24, 2011 "I have been buying your calendars for over 14 years " Luis L. (MT) December 24, 2011

"[The] 2011 calendar brought back lots of memories. I worked at 6 WTC (US Customs House) approximately 50' north of the North Tower. I was transferred to N.M shortly before the 1st bombing I remember working in the 11th floor of 20 West Broadway and watching the Towers rise before my eyes, blocking my view of the harbor". John L. (NM) October 1, 2011

“While I get your calendar every year, I've never written to comment on them before, but with 2011,
you have surpassed any and all expectations. We weren't aware of the theme as we leafed through the months.
It slowly became apparent what you did and hit with a wallop your choice for September.
Both my wife and I were moved to tears by this year’s calendar. Great work and peace to you”.
Richard O. (NY) January 9, 2011

“I am loving my 2011 calendar”.
Chuck G.  (PA) December 23, 2010
 
“Its always hard to pick a favorite picture on that calendar since all of Bill's choices are so good. Nevertheless I would have to say my two favorites on the 2010 calendar were; October - The IND 207 Street Yard chock full of R-1's just prior to the opening of the 8th Avenue Line. The next choice would be the one on the back cover, the BRT Fifth Avenue El at the intersection of Flatbush Avenue and Atlantic Avenues. Since the picture was taken from the street we get to see the clothes that folks were wearing back them. The newsstand even has a sign for the "Daily Eagle." Note too the absence of automobiles”.
Laurence Gault (NY) December 23, 2010
 
“First calendar was 1993. As they say "The Rest is History". Every year the end result gets better and better.

Thanks again”.
Alan B. (NY) September 13, 2005
 
Man, I sure love those 5 NYC subway calendars that I ordered from you recently! Wow, brought back so many memories.
You even had the Myrtle Ave. ‘el’ gate cars, 165th St. w/ LIRR, a few on East New York’s Broadway Junction and a magnificent background shot of the junior high school in Ridgewood that I taught at for a few years circa ’66-’75. The 2003 tribute to the World Trade Center was stunning and I wish to more as gifts. My son was living in NYC temporary during 9/11 and I was never
so relieved to get his call saying he was OK. Thanks again, Bill and keep up the great work! Can’t wait for ’06.
P.S. The ’96 Don Harold edition was yet another treasure.” 
Jim M. (CA) January 5, 2005

Continued success in your endeavors. God Bless America”!  Linda K. (by e-mail)

I occasionally attend meetings of transport groups here in London. The next one, which involves members of the London Underground Society, is a week from today. I shall ask around if anyone knows of your calendar, and shall bring back copies for those who are interested, or show them my copy when I return to England. Perhaps the London Underground Society even has a publication in which you might get a mention”.
