In 2017, the Second Avenue Subway opened Phase 1 and unveiled artwork in four subway stations. They are located at 96th Street, 86th Street, 72nd Street, and a new entrance to the existing station at Lexington Avenue at 63rd Street. MTA Arts & Design commissioned four artists for this ambitious project. Phase 1 is served by the Q train, with limited rush-hour N and R trains. Take a ride with us on the Q train, beginning on 63rd Street, heading north.
