Street 3D artist captures images of New York’s subway stations as they move around the city’s streets as part of project to make it easier for people to get around
A street artist has captured images of the subway stations in New York City as they pass through them and has also painted a new version of the iconic station sign on the Brooklyn Bridge.
In a video posted to YouTube on Saturday, street artist Roberta Zolotowski painted the iconic “B” on the Manhattan-bound Brooklyn Bridge with a new image of the sign, which is now visible from the New York skyline.
“I’m trying to make the bridge stand out from all the other ones and give it that street-level vibe,” Zolottowski said in the video.
The video, posted by Zolowski on Saturday night, shows a pedestrian walking past the Brooklyn station with the new sign.
Zolottowski then takes a photo of the new station sign and puts it in a subway car.
She then posts the new version to Twitter and Instagram.
The station sign was originally located on the corner of East 23rd Street and Seventh Avenue in Manhattan.
It was removed in 2015 after the Manhattan Borough President’s Office called for a new look to the sign.
Zolotowsky said she was inspired by the New Yorkers who have passed through the Brooklyn Station before her.
“I think of all the people who’ve passed through this station and I’m trying not to lose any of them,” she said.
The new version was inspired after Zolowitz’s previous painting of the Brooklyn Branch of the New Jersey Turnpike, which has a similar sign.
She said the new installation is not about taking credit for the station’s design, but rather showing how other people have created similar designs.
“It’s like, ‘OK, this is the one I made and this is how I’ve made it,'” she said, adding that the new artwork is inspired by other art installations in New Jersey.
Zolaowski said she plans to continue her work at the Brooklyn branch of the Manhattan subway.
