Artwork/Exercise equipment goes up under 40th Street Station
October 16, Staff Report
The proposed artwork/exercise equipment underneath the 40th Street subway station has finally been erected.
The Department of Transportation tried to put it up last month but ran into an engineering problem and removed it before it was fully installed.
The artwork/equipment is made with stainless steel– surrounded by rubber for safety purposes. Signs will accompany it to ensure people know how to use it.
A spokeswoman for the DOT said that the equipment/artwork will be up for one year—and then it will be taken down.
