Outdoor Art: NY Central Platform and "Waiting for the Night Train"

“Duke” Epolito and his friend Larry Zankowski made the statues – there were seven originally [six remain] and placed them on the platform under the cover of darkness back in 1982. Duke said back then they were a tribute to his days as a train passenger. 

The figures were posed as train riders; "Waiting for the Night Train" the piece was titled. It immediately captured the attention of thousands of I-690 commuters.

Many thanks to and Dick Case.
