  1. They’re beautiful. The use of stained glass in a public place depicting everyday scenes had an amazing way of making the mundane holy. (I’ve also never seen such a clean subway station.)

  2. Aside from the ever-present rat poison, NYC train stations tend to be fairly clean these days. This is one of my favorite recent public art finds — it’s simple but clever, making good use of the station infrastructure. Plus, it’s in a really low-profile location — people who don’t live in that neighborhood probably wouldn’t end up there.
