L train spoiler alerts

The L train subway platform signs that indicate more or less accurately how long you’ll have to wait, it must be said, deflate the excitement of that moment when the train arrives in the station, all clanging wheels and whooshing air tunnels. Artist Jason Eppink and interactive public art collective Newmindspace miss that feeling, and have hung “Spoiler Alert” signs under L train signs in stations in Manhattan and Brooklyn, although (spoiler alert), they’ve probably all bee removed by now.
