New Yorkers Change 72 St. Subway Station Sign For Meryl Streep’s Birthday

Happy birthday, Meryl Streep!

The beloved actress — perhaps the most talented of our generation — turns 72 today, and two New Yorkers have wished her a very special birthday right here in NYC.

Artist Adrian Wilson & production designer Matt Duncan have remade the 72nd St. subway station sign on the 1/2/3 line on the Upper West Side to read “72 Streep.”

Wilson has done a few of these subway art installations  in the past — from dedicating Franklin St. to Aretha Franklin to a David Bowie tribute at Broadway-Lafayette to changing 50th St. to “Ruth St.” in a memorial to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Most recently, he remade 46th St. into “46th Joe” for Inauguration Day.

He always uses stickers so there’s no permanent damage, or cost to the city to remove. You can even see his process in the photos below.

The sign should be there until the MTA or NYPD removes it since it is technically illegal to obscure the location of the station.
