Bleecker Street

Bleecker Street Subway StationFrom the ceiling at the top of the stairs from the platforms at the Bleecker Street station hangs Hive, a phenomenal art installation by Leo Villareal, done in LED tubes. The lights hang from the ceiling in an elliptical honeycomb pattern and gradually change color. An older and less obtrusive installation by Mel Chin, Signal, blends a bit more seamlessly with the station itself. Whether subtle or bombastic, both works reflect the funky, original, innovative artistic inspiration of the Greenwich Village neighborhood just above ground.
