NY TRAIN PROJECT
New York's subway system can be one of the most exciting or overwhelming experiences that a first time visitor or seasoned rider can have. I have been on the subway thousands of times but only until recently did I take the time to really look at my surroundings. One day while waiting for the 6 train at the Bleecker stop, I began to notice the intricate details of the carefully placed tiles in the station sign. Which led me to noticing other station signs and how they were all different, infused with the personality of the neighborhood. I decided that I wanted to share this with others by creating an online gallery of subways stations in NYC.
AWARDS & RECOGNITION
Since the launch of this project the response has been overwhelming. It's humbling to see all the great reactions all over social media. I've also been fortunate enough to have a write up in Mashable, Gizmodo, The New York Times, Fast Company, PSFK, Daily Mail, The Atlantic, Complex Magazine and Gothamist among many others.
BY THE NUMBERS
When I started this project one thing I wanted to track was the amount of time I spent on the subway, the number of swipes I used and the number of stations I completed for each borough. As of today, below are the stats for Manhattan and Brooklyn.
