Greengold was commissioned by 1995 MTA Art for Transit Program to do a permanent installment in the Grand Army Plaza subway station. The work, Wings for the IRT: The Irresistible Romance of Travel, is based on the winged women in the quadriga on the Soldiers and Sailor's Memorial Arch above the station, with an homage to the original IRT "winged train" logo.
