(below) Mosaic that I found at the 86th St. and Lexington Subway station. I couldn’t find a plaque so I don’t know who they are by. It is based on the wheel of fortune motif.
Below: Mosaic’s from the #1 subway line at Houston Street in Greenwich Village. These mosaics are from a series of 5 called “Platform Diving” (1994) by New York artist Deborah Brown. They seem to equate being underground in the subway with being underwater.
