Subway Atrium 1

I appreciate the way the city has designed individual subway stations and integrated public art into the spaces.  Not all of them are home runs, but many are just wonderful.  The 74th Street/Broadway subway station in Queens, which connects several lines to one another, is a good example.   The station atrium is a very open and voluminous entrance into and exit out of the subway.  Since the train lines are both under and above ground the station is very vertical.  I believe the design takes advantage of that verticality.  A nice touch is the installation of stained glass panels.  That is what you are seeing in this photograph, which is part of my Second Impressions work.
