Ninety years after Harry Sternberg’s etching Subway Construction, 1927, the three new stations of New York City’s Second Avenue Subway opened to the public on January 1, 2017.

 

Bravo to the MTA for meeting the deadline. Its most northern stop, the 96th Street Station, is the turn-around point for the Q train.

 

The Abe Blashko drawing of the musicians at the Union Square Station always makes me wonder if that’s supposed to be me in the blue outfit. He knew waiting for a train with those guys would make me crazy.
