To celebrate the centennial of the opening of New York City’s subway in 1904, the New York Transit Museum produced the 2004 publication, Subway Style: 100 Years of Architecture and Design in the New York City Subway. From train interiors to architectural details of stations to the development of token and mosaic signage design, Subway Style showcased more than 250 extraordinary photographs from the Museum’s archives that chronicled New York’s unique subway style over the years.
Join Museum Educator Danaleah Schoenfuss for a digital discussion to explore the aesthetic movements that defined New York’s subway style. Learn about Heins and LaFarge’s ornate Beaux-Arts work, explore the Arts and Crafts Movement through the mosaics of Squire Vickers, discover how the Independent Subway Company ushered in a Machine Age era of design, and see how stations continue to evolve through sustainable and accessible design initiatives.
