They have painted a New York Subway map on the window through which is viewed a suspended cut-out Manhattan island made of expired Metrocards.

I was intrigued by Anthropologie’s window display as I walked down West Broadway last week. They have painted a New York Subway map on the window through which is viewed a suspended cut-out Manhattan island made of expired Metrocards.

When I ‘Googled’ to see if any other Metrocard art existed I discovered some great pieces by 110th St. MTA booth attendant Louis Torres. Apparently he was ordered to remove his art from the windows of the ticket booth by MTA officials. They soon changed their minds when commuters complained and Louis’ pieces are now on display again.

Have a look at this link to see more of Louis’ art.
