Subway Station Art – 8th Street Station

IMG_2634

The 8th Street subway station in New York City, located near New York University, offers some great subway art. A series of 40 mosaics, designed by artist Tim Snell, are scattered along the platforms in both directions. Snell, a Canadian artist who is now based in New York City, was inspired by local street scenes. Collectively, the mosaics are titled Broadway Diaries.

Here are some of my favorite mosaics from Broadway Diaries.

The 8th Street station also has some great vintage mosaic directional signs that are not part of Broadway Diaries.
