So, Hurricane Sandy was rather destructive in our beloved New York City leaving a lot of us flooded, without electricity, without cell phone reception, and without transportation. I am lucky that my area of Brooklyn survived practically untouched, and my heart goes out to those whose homes were damaged or destroyed. As much as we are all annoyed by our oftentimes overcrowded, poorly run metro system, to be without said metro system is sooo much worse. So as an homage to our overpriced railway, I am sending her a get well soon with Nina Boesch’s lovely New York inspired artwork created with none other than our discarded Metro Cards. Each mosaic is created with sliced up cards carefully pieced together to create various New York landscapes and portraits. Her artwork has been displayed in local spots such as The Beach coffee shop in the East Village as well as well as places such as the Time Warner Center aaaannnnd can be purchased for prices ranging from $130 up to $1000. And so to our beaten, battered, and drowned metro system, WE STILL LOVE YOU! Please get well soon.
