Artwork: Shad Crossing (Ming Fay)

From nycsubway.org

Location: Delancey Street ยท Installed: 2004

On the Manhattan-bound platform of the F line, a mural by Ming Fay depicts a cherry orchard that was originally part of the Delancey family farm, on today's Orchard Street. On the Brooklyn-bound platform, shad fish, which make runs through our rivers every spring, represent the travel of immigrants across the ocean (and our travels across the Williamsburg Bridge).
