191 Street Beautification Project

Queen Andrea, Cope 2, and More Bless 191st Street Tunnel With New Murals

New York City’s 191st Street subway station has served a playground for graffiti and street artists for quite some time. Located in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan, the station’s 900-foot tunnel connects St. Nicholas Avenue and Broadway, and features a variety of pieces throughout its dimly lit corridors, as seen below.

The Department of Transportation recently revamped the raggedy-ass tunnel as part of their “191 Beautification Project,” commissioning six artists to create new murals for the stop: Queen Andrea, COPE2, Cekis, Nick Kuszyk, Jessie Unterhalter, and Katey Truhn. Yesterday, March 18, the city finally unveiled the finished pieces; check ’em out below.
