From the artist:
"This would have to be one of New York’s hidden jewels. Only the locals even know it exists anymore. Such an architectural masterpiece hidden below the streets of New York. I was very privileged to gain access to City Hall Station. Months of phone calls, emails and persistence finally paid off. The scene was incredible. A one time opportunity to have a private subway ride made this location even more special. I really felt like I was part of history. The cracked headlight, old original chandeliers and ceramic subway tiles really added that special charm and character to this timeless image."
