Dj Dance Party on the NYC Subway

There’s always something going on in the New York Subway – Music, art and entertainers to name a few, but one thing that’s lacking is human interaction. We could be sitting next to a fellow commuter for quite sometime yet we don’t say “hey buddy” and many a time avoid eye contact.

Starting conversation is so important and to break down those imaginary walls I decided to take it to the next level and throw a Dj Dance Party on the Subway.

MTA New York City Subway: 96th Street-2nd Avenue Station Tour

MTA New York City Subway [BMT Second Avenue Line]

(Q) | Coney Island, Brooklyn to/from Upper East Side, Manhattan

[NOTES]

-Before I say anything, trains were not shown in this video.

-96th Street is a station on the IND Second Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Second Avenue and 96th Street on the border of the Upper East Side and East Harlem neighborhoods in Manhattan, and it is the northern terminus for the Q train at all times, and for some N trains during rush hours. Opened on January 1, 2017, this station is the terminus for the first phase of the Second Avenue Line.

The 96th Street station is served by the Q train (rerouted from its former terminus of Astoria–Ditmars Boulevard) at all times, as well as some N trains during rush hours; it is the northern terminus of both services. It has two tracks and an island platform. The station is built so that it is more wide open than most other underground subway stations in the system. Its design was likened to a Washington Metro station by Dr. Michael Horodniceanu, President of MTA Capital Construction. The platform is approximately 49 feet (15 m) below ground, making the station the shallowest of the three Phase 1 stations. The platform for the 96th Street station, like the other Second Avenue Subway stations, is 27.8 feet (8.5 m) wide.

-The station has air-cooling systems to make it at least 10 °F (6 °C) cooler than other subway stations during the summer. This requires the station to have large ventilation and ancillary buildings, rather than traditional subway grates. The station is also compliant with current fire codes, whereas most existing stations are not. Additionally, the station is waterproofed with concrete liners and fully drained.

-South of the station, underneath 92nd Street, is a diamond crossover allowing northbound trains from track S2 to terminate on either track, then go into the storage tracks or proceed south on track S1. A section of tunnel north of the station, built in the 1970s between 99th and 105th Streets, was renovated. The tail tracks north of the station, which currently end at 99th Street, can store four trainsets, two on each track.

-In 2009, Sarah Sze was selected from a pool of 300 potential artists to create the artwork for the station. Her work, which is curated by Spanish artisans, consists of blue, violet, and lavender landscapes, as well as depictions of wind blowing things around. The artwork is located on the porcelain wall panels of the station. The installation is permanent.

-One of the pieces is called “Blueprint for a Landscape” and consists of a dark-blue landscape of things being blown around as if by an incoming train. A New York Times reporter described it as “fragmented images of scaffolding, birds, chairs and leaves, digitally collaged.” Another piece, in simple blue-and-white colors, consists of depictions of billowing sheets of paper. The work also serves the practical purpose of helping navigation, as the sheets are more closely packed together near the exits than in the middle of the station.
