Sublime on the subway

Niemann subway.jpg
Illustrator Christoph Niemann‘s poignant homage to the New York City subway can be seen here. His son Arthur’s knowledge of the subway system is almost savant-like, running like blood in his young veins. This series of captioned illustrations, which is the first in a monthly series in the New York Times, made me homesick for New York. I loved the comment of one respondent to the illustrations, who wrote that now, when faced with a query about which subway line to take, “I have to ask myself: What would Arthur do?”
