One of the (many) tiny, unexpected pleasures of New York has been checking out the various mosaic artworks in the city’s subway stations. Some are as utilitarian as announcing the station name, but others shatter platform boredom with their cracked colours. Some have been freshly commissioned, others have been preserved from bygone eras. All can be found in a great online directory here. So many I want to go and see now!

These fish were an exciting discovery last night.

And Prince Street’s tiny commuters scurrying along the walls were one of my first favourite discoveries. What a clever way to lighten up people’s journeys!
