Michelle Greene's "Railrider's Throne"

Permanently installed on the downtown platform of the 116th Street/Columbia University subway station is a welded steel chair called "Railrider's Throne" (1991) by Michelle Greene. The oversized grand chair was created to introduce humor into the station, and to "create a whimsical environment that allows the commuter to feel special as opposed to alienated" while waiting for the train on the platform.
