Life Underground

There is a whole world housed in the subway stations of New York. Artists, musicians, bums, white collar, blue collar, passerbys, children and everyone else come together in one place. Sometimes, it creates something really special.

The 8th Avenue station is home to little bronze statues in an exhibit called "Life Underground." Here are a few of the inhabitants: 

Subway stations are also home to thousands of street (or subway) performers, like this one in the Union Square station:

Just goes to show that, in New York, there's a lot of life that goes on underground.

Hey this is Seth, I found your blog through Marlow. Great video of the didgeridoo player. I'm finally moving back to NY this friday, so hopefully I'll see you around the city sometime. Hope you're doing well!
