I was out and about on one of my photographic missions and when I needed to zip downtown a few stops I realized that the 28th Street Station had some wild mosaic style art. I didn’t notice any creator names and just wanted to share them with you. Especially if you are one of our out of NYC readers who might be planning on visiting sometime soon. Enjoy the presentation.
“Life Underground” is the title of a public art project that was commissioned by the city of New York and done by sculptor Tom Otterness. Made of bronze, the humorous figures depict scenes of what goes on down here and gives some insight as to what might go on when there are only a handful of people around. Recently I took a ride over to the 14th Street and Eighth Avenue station via the “L” train and wandered around the platform and just above it to see how many images I could snare of these citizens of the subway system.
The first one I caught site of was this snake and since this is one of the “supposed” things we would find down here I am just glad that he wasn’t real. We’ve all seen rats scurrying about on the tracks but luckily no snakes. I guess if there were any of those around there would be less rats eh? Are you thinking what I am thinking? Nevermind, let’s continue.
