Marilyn Monroe in the Subway

MTA Arts for Transit has taken over some of the endless advertising space in the underground and let New Yorkers get a large scale glimpse of some candid shots of Marilyn Monroe, frolicking in the city in 1954. Taken by her friend Sam Shaw, the pictures are soft and lovely, a total contrast of the dirty subway- especially under the  tourist mobs of Bryant Park. Aside from a fresh distraction from the morning commute, the stretch of lightbox images even offers an alternate shot of the famous 7 Year Itch pic.
