Stenciled at the entrance to the Second Avenue subway station. I’ve been telling friends for years, that something like this should be made of bronze and embedded in the sidewalk outside every subway exit in the city.

these first started appearing on the 6 line from what I can tell. A few at first. http://nyctheblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/sidewalk-graffiti-provides-navigational.html
Last week, a bus ride from 86th to 14th showed every station (that i could see, at least) had been done! And now, more….the BDFV, NWR, 123, the L, Path trains, etc…they have all been spotted. I’m going to post more tomorrow. Also, the city did a pilot program with decals in 2007 at 4 stations in midtown: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/17/nyregion/17direction.html but it was never continued from what I can tell.
Thanks for the information Paolo, it is an idea whose time has come.
I saw one of these outside the 1st and 14th L stop. But it was pointing the wrong way! North was pointing East
Ah, maybe instead of a public service, they are in the service of anarchy.
I found one of these too, I think someone should plot all their locations, I have a picture of the one I found on 79th and Broadway.
That’s a good idea, then we can find the buried treasure.
I saw two on Friday. Both NW corner at a Subway stop. The images are in this Facebook photo album:
[WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ’0 which is not a hashcash value.
There are two of these symbols on the 8th Street and Broadway yellow line. The symbols are only on the west side of the street.
