Jessie Tarbox Beals, Photographer


The 23rd Street Station of the N/R/Q/W line has some of my favorite public art in NYC, Memories of Twenty-Third Street, by Keith Godard. Mosaic hats are scattered across the walls, at heights appropriate to their historical wearers, along with identifying tiles. This beauty belonged to Jessie Tarbox Beals, the first woman hired as a newspaper staff photographer.
