“I stumbled onto a slew of subway art at the 14th St/8th Ave station that I can’t figure out why I haven’t seen before. Public art creator Tom Otterness produced over a hundred bronze sculptures for the station, using adorable cartoon faces to portray a not so childish critique of “Life Underground“. Themes range from patrolling policeman to greedy people atop bags of money. Even the pay phone gets a face – a face too quirky not to document, so I took a picture on my camera phone to share!” – Summar Ghias/East Coast Editor
