Artist Keri Sheheen joins forces with the Staten Island Railway to beautify the New Dorp station. Her piece, titled “Creeping on Where Time Has Been” uses laminated glass windows and metal railings to honor Staten Island’s architecture and nature. While waiting for your train, visitors can view the art and try to spot the iconic landmarks of the borough, like the Vanderbilt Mausoleum. The project’s title comes from a poem by Charles Dickens called “The Ivy Green”, alluding to the ivy that has always, and seemingly will always, be prevalent on Staten Island.
