Subway Art

I was telling my sister-in-law Robin Horn, who is a tile artist, about the incredible tile art throughout the New York City subway system. I was at the New-York Historical Society yesterday, which is the same stop as the American Museum of Natural History. There’s some great tile work there. This is just one of many, there’s a lot to see at this one stop.

  1. I remember some of those tile pieces! It’s wonderful how we humans can step up and do things like decorate the subway.
