Inside New York’s $4.5 billion art museum: the Second Avenue Subway


New York has been waiting almost a century for the city’s Second Avenue subway line. And on Jan. 1, the dream officially became a reality.
With the $4.5 billion first phase of the project complete, the city’s Q line will now stop at three new stations along the East Side of Manhattan, running up to 96th Street, and at an existing station at 63rd Street. While that might sound a bit underwhelming, passengers who head underground get an additional perk: a delightful array of art.


The people Vik Muniz portrayed are actually real people living in NY, imagine having a life size portrait of yourself permanently hanging on the underground.
