The New York City subway system's unique style spans a fascinating range of design movements and sometimes competing aesthetics. Find out how to spot details such as ornate Beaux-Arts architecture by Heins & LaFarge and the Arts and Crafts style mosaics of Squire Vickers. Consider the connection between beauty and accessibility, form and function in designing transit spaces. Learn how stations continue to develop to meet future needs and design imperatives.  


Join Family Programs and Visitor Experience Manager Leigh Williams for a digital discussion exploring the evolving aesthetic movements found underground.
