Is it anyhow different from (paid) ads pasted top to bottom on many transit vehicles? Those mesh printed stickers are annoying and causing eye pain when you try to look through the windows

That looks more like a pool table to me. Or is the term 'billiards' used generically?

City Hall Station -

You can catch a glimpse of it on the 6 Train by Brooklyn Bridge–City Hall Station.
I discovered this the last time I was there. Too bad they don't leave the lights on so you can fully appreciate the station from inside the cabin.

Maybe there should be another thread for historical photos of the NY Subway?

From the #NYTMCollection: 30 years ago, New York City Transit launched an ad campaign with the by-line “The Subway. We’re coming back, so you come back.” The campaign was designed to change New Yorkers opinion of the subway and convince them it was no longer the system that it once was. Do you remember seeing these commercials?
