What's in a (Street) Name?
The flowing ribbon design of the tiles on the station's concrete retaining wall reflects the youthfulness of the nearby residents and refers to the geologic layers of the subway tunnel. Along the wall, there are three levels of terraced plantings, each about 300 feet long, full of plants that thrive in the heavy shade caused by being below grade. Human-sized bird feet face the passenger elevator floor. Up at street level, a series of six columns form 20-foot tall arches over the entrance to the station platform. Each arch is topped with a stained-glass bird that turns in the wind, reflecting both the stained glass in local homes and the enduring street name. Trees are planted along the bar islands, creating a tree-lined walk leading to the station.
