Artwork: The El (Daniel Hauben)

From nycsubway.org

Location: Freeman Street ยท Installed: 2005

The panels are entitled "Yankee Stadium", "Mango Vendor", "Barber Shop", "Under the El", "Arched Entrance", "Elevated and Trees", and "Westchester Square". Two panels on each platform and three in the mezzanine areas.

"My installation at the Freeman Street station consists of faceted glass panels depicting Bronx street scenes. Faceted glass is similar to stained glass, except that the glass pieces are an inch thick and cemented together with epoxy. This makes them very strong, and able to withstand the onslaught of wind and weather that it will encounter as a piece of outdoor public art on the train platform. There will be four large panels (four feet by eight feet), with two each installed on the uptown and downtown sides of the train platforms. The panels will be able to be seen from the street below as well. In addition, each indoor area will feature a three-panel alcove window, which will also be a faceted glass version of my original work."-- Daniel Hauben. Source: cuny.edu.

This artwork was selected by the Americans For The Arts organization as one of the top 40 works of public art in the nation in 2007.
