via the MTA's Arts for Transit and Urban Design

The subway stop at East 16th Street and Avenue H in Brooklyn has always looked quaint—it's "the city's only shingled wooden cottage turned transit house"—but now it's downright country. The early 1900s structure was given some rocking chair flair from the MTA's Arts for Transit and Urban Design program recently, and it's transformed the mass transit hub into a front porch. Or as we see it: a Cracker Barrel!

On their Facebook page, they explained: “The artwork, along the north and south facades of the Station House, consists of casual groupings of cast bronze rocking chairs, anchored in place... Each chair, though similar in style to one another, is subtly different with a variety of weaves, colors and patterns. The colors of the rocking chairs recall and harmonize with the decorative hues of the surrounding Queen Anne and Colonial houses and recall the graciousness of front-porch society from days gone by.” Transportation Nation notes that the installation is permanent.
