Introducing the Second Avenue Subway. Almost 100 years in the making, New York City's Q train will now leave 57th St. and 7th Avenue and go uptown on the East Side, stopping at Lexington and 63rd and then 2nd Avenue at 72nd, 86th and 96th, as part of Phase One. The new subway stations feature art installations as well, including artist Vik Muniz’s “Perfect Strangers”, which depicts two men, Thor Stockman and Patrick Kellogg, a married couple who are shown holding hands.

At the 36th St. subway station in Brooklyn, one of the subway stairs is a little bit higher than the others. Filmmaker Dean Peterson set up a camera at the top of the stairs for about an hour, and taped what happens.
Starting Tuesday, AT&T and T-mobile subscribers will be taking their calls on the subway platforms, and possibly, on the train itself. Subscribers riding along the 14th Street corridor should be able to use their phones on the A, C, E, F, L, M, No. 1, 2 and 3 platforms. There is also expected to be service on the C and E platforms at 23rd Street. It it not clear yet if service will also work between stations, but we're sure we'll all find out soon enough. All stations are expected to be outfitted with cell service by 2016.
