Best: L/G Lorimer/Metropolitan
There seem to be so many more stations in Manhattan with elaborate mosaics and inspirational quotes and what have you. Well, that's fine. Manhattan can keep all their "art." But, here, at the Lorimer/Metropolitan station in Williamsburg, Jackie Chang's 1999 work "Signs of Life" is actually the most perfect artistic addition to any station that I've ever seen. Comprised of several different pieces, "Signs of Life" makes you pause as you haul ass from the G to the L, and makes you think about your place in this station, in this city, in this world. And then you go on your way. Where are you going? It doesn't really matter. You're going somewhere. Possibly, it's Roberta's. Probably it is.
