Urban Omnibus Meet-up
Atlantic Avenue – Pacific Street Subway Station
Tour and discussion with Fred Bland, George Trakas, and Karrie Jacobs
Presented by Urban Omnibus and WNYC
Wednesday, September 30, 2009
Atlantic Avenue – Pacific Street is a station where ten (ten!) subway lines converge. (Only nine come together at Times Square – 42nd
Street, the system’s busiest station). Don’t miss an opportunity – next Wednesday at 6:30 – to wander through the station with residents, subway station enthusiasts, and with a few special guests: environmental artist George Trakas
, who made the hanging sculpture
in the center of the station; critic and journalist Karrie Jacobs
, a contributing editor to Metropolis
and downtown Brooklyn resident, and the architect who conducted a major masterplan for the station’s renovation in the early 1990s, Fred Bland, managing partner at Beyer Blinder Belle, Architects & Planners LLP
We’ll meet at the northwest corner of Pacific Street and 4th Avenue at 6:30 p.m. No reservations are necessary, but please email us if you plan on attending so we can estimate audience size. Bring your Metrocard.
