Iíve never liked that hideous green color. I think it should be blue like the elevated structure in Philly.

Something about that dark green looks hideous, old and outdated.

We have so many artists in the City we should open up the space for artwork.

I can't think of a better color than the olive green that it is.

Blue would look worse IMO

A hot pink baby blue would be interesting as well.

Or NY colors like blue and orange?

Sell advertising?

I do like the art idea. Pay these struggling artist a standard fee...

I'm guessing the color choice wasn't aesthetic. Likely there something in the paint necessary for corrosion protection that gives it the green color.
