  • It is rather surprising to see miniature statues in a subway station. After, it does not break bricks, donation to see if we're going, but make the trip just for this attraction, these (waste of time

  • Deep underground within the 14th/8th Street Subway station is the most amazing fantastical excursion into art with the Tom Otterness sculpture collection known collectively as Life Underground. I spent about an hour and a half walking through the station trying to find all of the sculptures. I found most of them and I really enjoyed the experience of exploring looking for more. Amazingly when I would get down on the floor or climb to photograph something some of the locals would look to see what I was doing and start because they had not noticed the statues before. I had quite a few interesting conversations with people who were noticing what I was noticing and they'd used the station for years. The MTA Police were onto the game though and one officer when I missed one kindly pointed it out. I guess they're used to watching people come in and discover. What a wonderful experience. You really need to visit this if you're in NYC. #letsguide
