6. 28th Street (6)

7 waves 4 twenty eight by Gerald Marks at 28th Street on the 6 line is a 3D computer-animated seascape mural. As a result of the glass blocks, lighting, and the curvature of the wall, the installation creates an illusion of movement. Commuters can best see this piece in action while traveling past it on the train. [Update: This installation has since been replaced by blooming flower mosaics by Nancy Blum].

7. Livonia Avenue (L)

If you can’t go to the beach, the least you can do is look at it. Although the Livonia Avenue station’s installation is titled Seasons by Philomena Williamson, the summer piece of the series does the hottest season of the year justice.
