Don't miss the dazzling "Parade" at this newly-renovated subway station in Harlem

December 5, 2018


Practically in continuous use since it was first built in 1904, the 145th Street station on the 3 line just reopened after a five-month-long renovation. Accompanying the MTA's dramatic improvements to the walls, ceilings and platforms are dazzling new mosaics from local artist Derek Fordjour.



Entitled "Parade," the multi-panel art celebrates Harlem's legacy of pomp via rows of impossibly limber line majors, hip-swaying dancers, and feathered-hat wearing drummers.



The colorful designs, made with shiny glass from Miotto Mosaics, stretch across the walls of both platforms. Although this particular stop in Harlem is not a central one, the mosaics are so striking, they're definitely worth a detour.
