Alice in Wonderland waiting for the subway

March 23, 2009

Alice had her adventures underground after falling down the rabbit hole. So it’s fitting that these mosaic murals of her, the Mad Hatter, and other characters can be found underground on the 1 train platform in the 50th Street station.


Installed in 1994, the murals are collectively called “Alice: the Way Out” by artist Liliana Porter.¬†


Alice isn’t only underground in New York City; the beloved¬†Alice in Wonderland sculpture is in Central Park off East 74th Street.
