One of the most noticeable features of the station is a riddle, engraved into the tiles on the wall that separates the station from the freeway. This art installation was created by Roman De Salvo in 2005.
The riddle reads:
"Arteries, veins, and, capillaries. For autos, rain, and, catenaries. All three lines are side by side.
Above, below, and, stratified. None is numbered less than nine. Another was there at the dawn of time.
The last will be here after a wait. Or, right away if you’re not too late.
Look around to solve this riddle. Name all three, top, bottom and middle.
If bewildered, feel the handrail. The answer there is writ in Braille.”
