Það sem verður gert

The New York City Subway is not just a public transit system; it houses a lot of historical sites, hidden gems, and important artworks. Did you know that there are over 300 NYC subway stations with public works of art? Do you know where the first subway line was located? How did the immigrants of NYC in 1900 use the subway? I'll take you on an unforgettable tour of the subway which will change your view of being underground.

We will start by discussing the history of the New York Subway system that was started in 1904. Through the tour, we will see original mosaics and terracotta tiles along with public art works that were commissioned by the MTA. The Metropolitan Transit Authority launched the MTA Arts & Design program in 1985.

- 2-2.5 hours long (depending on trains)
- See the secret City Hall Station
- View historical mosaics and contemporary public artworks
- Visit a variety of stations on different lines
- Start in the East Village
- End in the Upper East Side
Other things to note
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. We will be traveling underground so there may be puddles or trash in areas and you'll want to have on closed-toe shoes. Rain or shine--we are underground!

Hello! My name is Caitlin. I have a Bachelor's degree in Art Education and I was a high school art teacher for four years. I spent 3 years working as a tour guide at Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater house and now I'm hosting tours about public art in NYC. When I moved to New York City, I immediately fell in love with how much public art and culture was on display. I was pursuing my Master's degree in Art Business when I decided to focus on cataloging public art and realized there was a lot to see underground. I became inspired to share the artwork with locals and tourists alike. I created my own route through Manhattan to showcase some of the original mosaics and terracottas from 1904 all the way to contemporary works that have been placed in the stations last year.

Caitlin was a great host. Can warmly recommend this tour to NYC residents (as well as visitors) as you experience the subway in a new light. We saw 15+ artworks, saw a abandon station and played music instrument artwork + got lots of info!

The art tour with Caitlin was fantastic. I reached out to her the night before, and she got back to me quickly. Caitlin was super warm and friendly. On the tour, she was so knowledgeable and thorough with the information she shared with us. I live in NYC, and I had never paid attention to the beautiful artwork she pointed out and explained to my partner and me, and now I'm on the lookout each time I hop on the train. Even if you live in the city, you should take this tour!

I've lived in NYC for 20+ years and yet, I was blown away by all the fascinating art I had never noticed in the subway stations. Caitlin is a true expert, and incredibly passionate about the public art on display. As a former high school art teacher, she is also very patient and thorough in her explanations. This private tour is perfect for tourists and NY natives alike. New York City is always full of little surprises, although after many years, those surprises can become fewer and farther between. This subway art experience will rekindle your wonder about this fearless and resilient city. Go!

The tour covers from the inception of the system to its newest stations, recently completed.
