Observing Above at Union Street Station in Brooklyn

Logo - Union Street

The other night I was at a Yelp Elite event which was a whole lot of fun and after that one last beer found myself just missing the train that I needed to get back to my creative command HQ. I didn’t have a book or a decent WiFi signal since I was underground and this is an unconnected station still so the boredom found me looking around and upward toward the artwork above the station name. There was some pretty ornate decoration up there and since I am always with a camera of some kind on my person be it a point and shoot or the mobile phone I decided to walk the platform and snap images of all of the ones I could see on the side of the platform heading to Bay Ridge.

Though I didn’t know this at the time, these bits of art were called “CommUnion” and done by Emmett Wigglesworth. Please enjoy the images that I secured.

Alright that is all that I have for you with this one, I hope you liked it. You can learn more about the station via the Wiki entry below and the next time you are underground, how about you stop looking at your mobile device and look around a little more. You’d be surprised at the sights you’ll see if you do. Oh yeah and a word of caution, be very wary of your surroundings when doing this kind of thing and don’t go too far back to the tracks where you can risk injury or worse. I don’t want anything to happen to anyone.
