It’s been nearly six weeks since Election Day, and the wall of “Subway Therapy” Post-It notes that has formed underground in New York City is finally being removed.
By now, nearly 50,000 sticky notes have formed a thick and colorful wallpaper in Manhattan’s 14th Street Union Square subway station following the results of the 2016 presidential election.
The unique and spontaneous art project, which all started with a few Post-It notepads and a handful of pens at the busy subway passage, has now become a piece of the city’s history.
Many of the messages are uplifting, offering words of hope to fellow commuters as they go about their day.
“It gives me hope that such beauty and solidarity is coming out of such chaos,” one reads.
“Together we can rise,” reads another.
Another says: “You will not divide us. Love is everything.”
Others are angrier, bearing messages such as, “Refuse and resist fascism,” and simply, “F*** Donald Trump.”
