NYC Gets Up

Is that a Long Island in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

Something has changed indeed.

Emerging street artist Beast made a few not-so-subtle alterations to the map and posted them at subway entrances around the city last week. Props to him for taking the Manhattan as phallus motif a step further and for poking (no pun intended) fun at the MTA’s silly new ad campaign.


Another version of the faux-sign evokes recent events.

Tourists continued using the maps, unhindered by the text tilted 100 degrees.

Something’s different here. Ah yes! They changed the color of the water!
