Poetry in Motion at 25

Poetry in Motion at 25 celebrates the beloved program that has delighted subway and bus riders with its selection of short, stimulating verses from a variety of published poets since 1992 when it first displayed an excerpt from Walt Whitman’s “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry.”  With support from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Poetry in Motion program has presented more than 200 poems to millions of subway and bus riders, offering a moment of respite to commuters during their busy day. Since 2012, the program has been administered by MTA Arts & Design and the Poetry Society of America. The Museum’s exhibit at Grand Central Terminal features a broad range of the original Poetry in Motion car cards that have appeared in the New York City Transit system over the last twenty-five years.
