Railroad bridges as artistic canvas?
Apparently that’s the concept behind a $60,000 state grant to create art displays on the five train bridges that run through Port Chester. Mayor Dennis Pilla said the public art project would involve Port Chester, the MTA and SUNY Purchase. The idea is to build trusses that would attach sculpture or other displays onto each bridge.
Art students could compete over the design, and invite public participation, the mayor said. The displays would change periodically. Thoughts? Leave a comment below.
For now though, the big question at the train station is whether Port Chester commuters will have to pay higher fares to the city than their farther-afield neighbors in Greenwich. See our earlier post on that, and check out the comment from the CT Rail Commuter Council.
