Asking for a friend:
A children's/YA novel with some black & white illustrations throughout (they have a creepy, nearly sci-fi Shaun Tan feel, maybe?) set in an underground city, or city under a city (maybe NY?). Cover shows a subway platform and maybe tiled walls -- or tiles make up the font? From 70s/80s? With a plain-spoken title like Under Ground or Under City or...a standalone, not a series. Not The Underland Chronicles, "The City Underground" by Suzanne Martel, "This Time of Darkness" by HM Hoover, or "The Tutti Fruitti Connection" by Alan Cameron.
She says the author's last name might sound Russian/Eastern European but it's an American book.
