The city’s Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance has partnered up with 5 artists to beautify the New York Subway!
We all know how creepy the subways passages in New York City can be. Garbage, dirt, weird smells that you have no intention of knowing what it is. Plus, the little friendly rats are always there to entertain while we wait for the next train.
Well, the visitors and locals that are constantly passing by the tunnel that connects Broadway to 191st Street subway station are happier than ever before! This area, at the very Northern tip of Manhattan, is called Fort George.
That area has actually quite a few interesting places to visit. Plus, a few historical sights and landscapes that are gorgeous! If you are interested in heading that way, but prefer heading up with an expert guide, let our experts arrange this for you!
The city’s Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA) selected 5 artists to help change the atmosphere there. NoMAA is a non-profit arts service organization that cultivates, supports and promotes the works of artists and arts organizations in Northern Manhattan.
Artists from all over across the globe applied for this work, but the chosen ones were mostly locals.
The final chosen names were:
- Fernando Carlo Jr. (a.k.a. Cope 2)
- Queens-based artist Nick Kuszyk’s
- Andrea von Bujdoss
- Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn from Maryland
- and the Chilean artist Nelson Rivas
Don’t hesitate to take some time and visit the scene. And, like we said above, if you want to visit the area, but have no idea how to get there or even, where to go, let our experts organize a cool experience for you!
It’s definitely worth it!
