    I think I’m more excited about this than New Yorkers are. It looks great!

    I was on the inaugural train from 57th today – Was exciting – I’ve never seen so many people smiling – Amazing it took this long! The Art work is great, the stations are great with lots of art work – I agree with you, the stations were rushed and need more work – Thats why the trains aren’t running in the evenings for the next week or so – Regarding the escalator – They had more construction/electrical/escalator people on staff – I’d be surprised if it wasn’t fixed already – This line will transform the Upper East Side

    Apparently that particular mosaic is a self portrait of the artist.

    And to follow up Ben, the person posing with the self portatit is doing a self portrait of this blog.

    Concourse levels serve an important purpose at crowded stations with more access points,, getting people off the platform quickly, allowing new people to access the platform for the next train. I don’t know if the 2nd Ave subway is set up this way.
