in the East Village

 this one
 is on
 the subway platform
8th Street

 there are
 many of these
 the city's subway system platforms

 no amount 
any closer
 to learning
 created them
Googling images 
I discovered
 a lot more station art 
I want to go see in person

  2. I was very pleased to seek out this net-site.I wanted to thanks on your time for this wonderful learn!! I definitely enjoying every little little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you blog post.

  3. I love it that art used to be an integral part of most public places and buildings - this is an excellent example. I consider the moldings and ironwork to be art too, though:)

  4. I like how the girl's arm pointing makes the image pop.

  5. Love this one. I need to pay closer attention next time I'm in the city.

  6. How wonderful! I think the only art on the underground in London is Graffiti! Mind you some Graffiti can be quite artistic. :)

  7. This one is wonderful!
    Looks like a map in hand. So perfect for the subway.

  8. i love finding art in unlikely places. there's a small business district in our neck of the woods. a local jewelry maker has covered the curbs and concrete park benches in mosaics. such a visual delight. thanks for sharing yours :)

  9. another great find..
    it is fun going along on your walks as you
    discover the mosaics.

  10. "While the frazzled wife clutched the map and wondered why men *never* ask for directions, her mildly irritated husband, being a man and all, argued (as all men do) that he knew *precisely* where they were going. No directions were necessary. Then the innocent child, trying to look at anything other than his bickering parents, spied the Empire State Building off in the distance, and neither the map nor the directions nor the bickering were necessary."

    Wait. I thought we were coming up with captions for the art.

  11. That's an amazing mosaic! I'm just catching up with your posts here and enjoying all I've missed BUT that Saturday/weekend confusion was too much. Hate when that happens!!!

  12. That wife definitely doesn't look happy!

  13. I like the idea behind this, but I'm not sure this looks very professional. But then why does everything need to look professional?

  14. An excellent resource for information about art on the MTA resides at...

    The main site,, is THE best website concerning subways, period.

  15. Nice find Daryl, that happens to me all the time but as you say the good thing is finding other stuff to check out!
