Just as ABC did for a TV Show Reboot that is, thankfully, no longer on the air, Playstation has launched an immersive ad campaign for the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man Game in the Subway Cars that run on the S Shuttle line along 42nd Street between Times Square and Grand Central Station.

Spider Man Subway Car Interior

As you can see, the cars are quite vibrant and inviting on the exterior, but the interiors are also full of fun details that you might miss if you don’t look closely.

And while at first glance it appears that some inconsiderate riders have left their newspapers behind on the seats, let’s take a closer look.

The trip is only one-minute between stations, but the car was still a kick to ride in!

Ceramic sculptor Toby Buonagurio, the studio coordinator and sculpture director of Stony Brook’s Department of Art, is known for her colorful ceramic sculptures and innovative designs. The New York New Year’s Eve tile above is part of  Times Square Times: 35 Times,  a permanent public artwork commissioned from Buonagurio by the MTA Arts for Transit. It is permanently installed in illuminated presentation windows embedded in the shiny new glass block station walls throughout the Times Square – 42nd Street Subway Station in the heart of New York City. The artworks are owned by the MTA New York City Transit.

Times Square Times: 35 Times is comprised of 35 unique, one of a kind sculptural ceramic reliefs created by the artist over five years. The work may be viewed in the Times Square – 42nd Street Subway Station along the 7th Avenue Passage, the 41st Street Corridor, the Broadway Mezzanine and the Subway Entrance at 42nd Street. The station is open to the public twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Times Square Times: 35 Times is routinely viewed by more than half a million subway riders daily.

Buonagurio’s project was conceived around three characteristic, conceptual themes emblematic of the energetic vibrancy of Times Square: Performing Arts, Fashion and Street Life – the people, the places, the things – readily recognizable to the average, everyday visitor, not matter where they are from.

Happy New Year, Everyone! Let’s Make 2018 the Best Year Ever!

This comfy looking upholstered chair, which bears the likeness of Hello Kitty, is currently displayed in the front window of the Hello Kitty / Sanrio Store in Times Square, on 42nd Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues. If you look, not even that closely, you can see a reflection of the McDonalds just across the street.

I don’t even know what to say about this Hello Kitty / Tomato-hybrid plush toy spotted in the Hello Kitty Sanrio store, on 42nd Street, in Times Square. If there was a Hello Banana, I would want to own it.
