Artwork in the New York City Subway

By now many of you know that even though I don’t live in my hometown of New York City I love to write about it. I just discovered some interesting stories that have to do with Times Square. Riding the subway in the corridor between the N R Q and W subway lines and the S platform at the 42nd Street Times Square Station you’ll find an art gallery of sorts. There are handmade ceramic reliefs created by sculptor Toby Buonagurion, who lives in the Bronx.

Altogether there are 35 works of art that were installed in 2005 depicting New York street scenes. You can see things like a woman with cat-eye glasses, wearing red gloves and a tropical fruit charm bracelet looking at a subway map and in another scene a kid offering a huge dollar bill for a hot dog among other amazing depictions.  So if you happen to be in the city do go to take a look at this amazing artwork.

Sounds interesting to me since at the time I lived there many of the subway stations were just run down and the faster you got your train and got back up above the better.
