    Architects working on the upcoming Fulton Street station have finally found a way to bring some light into the notoriously dark and dank NYC subway system. The innovative station design, expected to be unveiled in 2014, will feature an eight-story glass dome suspended by a 70 feet cabling system. The glass tiles of the dome will filter and amplify the natural light down onto the train passengers below. Surprisingly the idea is not entirely new, early subway designs featured small skylights but they were difficult to keep clean and overtime were scrapped in favor of low maintenance artificial lighting. However officials are hoping the success of Fulton Street will encourage other stations to bring the light back to the underground.

    Artist Ming Liang Lu creates intricate portraits out of paper of people on the L train platform in Union Square. Under his fast fingers, paper turns to caricature in a matter of minutes. The finished portraits go up on the wall of the subway, a makeshift gallery.
