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,┬ámade 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?”
