The Murals of 8th Street-NYU
When I hear the subway conductor (or automated voice, if I'm on one of the newer trains) announce this station, I always look up. I don't care how immersed I am in my book or magazine, I can't help but glance out the windows.
The walls have the most beautiful murals of any station I've visited in New York, rivaled only by those at the Delancey Street/Essex Street station not too far away. The ones at 8th Street are smaller, but I do like them better. Pleasant. Colorful. Something I'd want on my own wall.
It's my favorite subway station in all of New York.
