If you happen to take the N, R or Q trains to the Fifth Avenue and 59th Street stop on your way to the Central Park Zoo, be sure to first participate in the underground Subway Art Safari that’s going on in the station, as you will not only encounter this colorful flock of Parrots, but also tiles mosaic murals of Penguins, Horses, Monkeys and other creatures.

A family of lavender-shelled snails makes its way to the train in the 5th Avenue and 59th Street Subway Station, where you can catch the N, Q or R Trains, or exit to Central Park!

They are moving slow, so it easy to get a good shot on your Subway Art Safari!

The 5th Avenue and 59th Street Subway Stop of the N, Q and R Trains lets you off just few blocks from the entrance to the Central Park Zoo, and you can enjoy a bit of urban safari even before you exit the station which features a collection of colorful tile mosaic murals of various animals that you might find in the zoo or in and around the park. Check out this family of monkeys!

This family of happy Penguins can be found right by the stairs as you exit from the N, Q and R Trains at 59th Street (Central Park South) and Fifth Avenue. This also the stop you would take to get to the Central Park Zoo.

Actually, I am not sure if these are Polar Bears, or just white bears, or maybe ghost bears. Anyway, I snapped this picture on the uptown platform of the N/R/Q Trains at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street, right by Central Park!
