Artwork: Marine Grill Murals, 1913 (Fred Dana Marsh)

From nycsubway.org

Location: Fulton Street (Broadway-Nassau) ยท Installed: 2000

The 1913 Marine Grill murals by Frederick Dana Marsh, now installed in the Fulton/Broadway/Nassau complex, were originally in a basement restaurant of the McAlpin Hotel on Herald Square. The developer converting the hotel to condos agreed at the last minute to preserve them. While the workers managed to remove most of the ceramic tiles without breaking them, they simply piled them at random in two dozen crates. MTA Arts for Transit had the crates delivered to a TA bus garage with some free floorspace, and a group of college interns spent their summer playing jigsaw puzzle! They were reinstalled at Broadway/Nassau in 2000. (Thanks to Harry Matthews for the info.)
