"Intersection" exhibit in the Bowling Green station

If a trip through the Bowling Green station isn't part of your regular subway commute, it's worth taking a detour to check out the latest MTA Arts for Transit exhibit, "Intersection," featuring seven aerial snapshots of New York City.


The images were captured by photographer Navid Baraty, who got creative when staging these shots—he leaned out of windows and over ledges, with his camera attached to his wrist, in order to show a bird's-eye view of the city. The resulting photos are arresting, kinetic portraits of a New York that most residents will never get to see (unless, of course, you're comfortable with leaning far over the ledges of skyscraper windows—we're not).


The subway art exhibit will be up through 2014, so check it out while you can.
