Capital(ist) Improvements

I know countless people have photographed the many statues of Tom OtternessLife Underground installation at the 14th St. & 8th Ave. subway station, so there’s no real need to add to the gazillions already spinning through the internet. One of the many charms of the little statues scattered throughout the station is how they’re smoothly integrated into the environment of the station. In this instance, this little guy, who looks like a close relation of Monopoly’s Rich Uncle Pennybags, appears to be  waiting patiently for the next subway, presumably so he can take the sack of money he’s clutching to the bank. This day, however, he enjoyed a brief respite from his perpetual waiting as transit workers installed a new pipe within his line of sight, and I felt that this break in the ordinary course of events was worthy of capturing with my cell phone camera.
