In some ways, the 50th Street subway station is a little shabby, but if you look closer the station is home to some treasures. There are four glass mosaic murals, titled Alice: The Way Out, by Argentinian-born New York City artist Liliana Porter. If you are a fan of the classic children’s novel Alice in Wonderland you will appreciate these murals.
There are also other subway tiles reflecting the influence of different eras in this subway station’s history, including the vintage terra cotta tile station sign and the more modern ceramic tile destination signs.
If you would like to see these murals for yourself, the 50th Street Station is serviced by the 1 train.
