I recently fell asleep on the D train (actually, it was the day that Hurricane Sandy arrived — I returned to Manhattan on the last Q train before the deluge) and woke as the train arrived at Fort Hamilton Parkway station. My accidental snooze took me down into deep Brooklyn's West End, which has seen a string of station renovations, and there are some brilliant new works of art.  

I'll say more about what's to see later, but above is an example of some work on glass by local artist Portia Munson. Even with steel-grey storm clouds approaching, the above-ground station glowed with her vivid, symmetrical flower patterns.
