Coming home from Brooklyn the other night, I changed trains at the 14th Street station in Manhattan and stumbled upon these little people. Even though I don’t have much occasion to head through this station, knowing that these bronze statues will always be here, makes the city an even happier place for me!
It might be the last stop, but this journey starts here!
He looked friendly enough, but I was glad he was chained down…
Around the corner, this pair was busy at work (maybe the bags were for the sawdust?)
Hey! No sleeping allowed here!
BEFORE: A portrait of Mr. Money Bags …
AFTER: (Now you know what’s under NY manhole covers!)
Keeping the subways clean is obviously an uphill job…
But he’ll work for (Chinese) food!
Hurry, Dear! We’re going to miss our train!
At this station there IS such thing as free lunch…
And, for these two, that’s reason enough to celebrate.
Women at work (or, maybe just looking for a bra)…
The guards have their hands full..
Time and time again!
She lost her head (was it a poisoned apple?)…
And she was guarding the loot.
I think she was looking up the next-of-kin…
Shh! The walls have ears!
(If she wasn’t made of bronze, she’d do the hula)…
And through it all he just wanted to go home!
Thanks for sharing, Joana!
You’ll have to make note to visit these “little people” when you come and visit New York.
Espero que tudo esta bem e que tems uma boa fin de semana!
Cool….it’s fun to find surprises like that.
I’m sure the people passing through the subway that night thought I was a weirdo since I was going around taking all of those pictures. Who cares! That’s the beauty of New York. There are so many people that weird is the new normal.
Something different ,, 👀👃👀first time in my life ,, thank for sharing ,,,,👄
You’re very welcome! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
