Response from Cnewsham50, Owner at New York City's Amazing Subway Mosaic Art
Responded Nov 7, 2019
Thank you! I'm so happy you enjoyed it and I'll keep you informed of future tours! You would probably enjoy my full day tour (with a lunch break at Junior's), where we explore some of the fabulous mosaics in lower Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx. I'll be adding some of those tour dates soon and will probably happen in the Spring and Summer.
