Yes, the New York City subway has a less-than-savoury reputation, it’s a reputation that’s not undeserved. Still, it’s often the fastest mode of transportation in a gridlocked city, and it’s not without its charm, including the iconic tile work that renders the station names. And if you’re traveling through the Times Square-42nd Street subway station, you’ll be able to take in American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein’s Times Square Mural, his last public work — posthumously installed in the subway in 2002 in collaboration with his estate. The retro-futuristic 16-panel mural stretches six feet by 53 feet long, and includes references unique to the city, including New York’s historic subway signage, and the architecture of both the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs. The contrast of the artwork with the bustling crowds of the station only activates the mural further, making it seem more animated and alive alongside the city it depicts.
