Artist Yan Nascimbene captures a historic steam engine #39, pulling into the Greenport Station. The village of Greenport, located at the eastern tip of Long Island, has long been a destination for commerce and leisure.

|What's the Story||This poster was commissioned by MTA Arts & Design and was displayed throughout the subway system. The Poster Program commissions artists each year to create artwork that celebrates the city and its transit system. Posters are displayed on platforms throughout the city’s 468 subway stations and sold to the public at the Transit Museum Stores. The Program provides illustrators and other artists the opportunity to reach a broader public, while expressing the people, places, and purpose of the transit network with visual appeal and variety.|
