Going Underground

For those dealing with the frustrations of commuting to the east side of Manhattan on a daily basis, here is a view of how one small country gets things done. While New Yorkers have been waiting almost a century for the 2nd Ave Subway line, in the 9 years since The Guy and I left Brussels, the Belgians have opened five new stations including the hub Gare de l'Ouest/Weststation, extended two lines and just this past weekend implemented a totally revamped metro system.

Their underground has horses (I spent many mornings admiring this one), Icarus, a provocative sculpture and modern art in all the stations

Not to mention stations named after famous Belgians.
And your cellphone will work down in the metro, too.
