Hive (Bleecker Street)

Coming out of the Bleecker Street 6 Station is like coming out of a video game. The glowing LED light installation spans across the ceiling as commuters ascend into the real world. The hive shapes morph from one color to the next, and are based on research by mathematician John Conway- the same dude who created Game of Life.


The piece is the work of Leo Villareal commissioned by the MTA, and compares commuters to worker bees, buzzing through Manhattan on their way to work.


Finally a recent MTA commissioned piece in Manhattan that doesn’t suck!

Who: Leo Villareal

What: Hive (Bleecker Street)
