Underground Fish on the Lower East Side
The subway platforms on the line I take most often are plain and boring.
Here's the station closest to our apartment:
See that orange on the wall? On the next stop it's blue. Two stops later-- yellow. After that-- gray. You get the idea. I don't even have to read the signs on the subway. I just have to catch a glimpse of the wall.
But many of the stations in Manhattan are much more creative. Take the Delancey Street/Essex Street station on the Lower East Side. It's one of my favorites. Fish murals! It almost makes waiting for the train pleasant.
