Photo by myself at the 81st Street subway station, on the Upper West Side.
A photo from the subway station just around the corner from the Museum of Natural History.
Other artwork in this station includes bronze castings of dinosaur fossils, embedded into the wall. The mosaics and fossils are playfully scattered throughout the station.
Hundreds of art pieces are installed in the New York subway stations. Most of the art is engaging and have something to do with the immediate area, which is nice since one subway platform could easily look like any other.
The artwork in the 81st Street station was completed in 2009. For more about it, click here.
