Westeros Takes Manhattan

Westeros Takes Manhattan

You see some strange things on the New York City subway but lately there have been significantly more White Walker sightings than usual. This comes courtesy of HBO as Game of Thrones imagery has taken over the Grand Central station. 

In addition to the iconic moments displayed on the walls, turnstyles, and pillars of the station, subway riders who purchase a MetroCard at one of the machines there have a chance of getting one of four special edition #ForTheThrone designs: Jon’s resurrection, Cersei’s walk of atonement, the birth of Daenerys’ dragons, and the Night King doing the universal symbol for “Come at me, bro.”

Here’s a glimpse of the installation:
