Reach New York is located along the platforms of the BMT Broadway line. It consists of a rack hanging from the ceiling of each platform with sensors along the length. Waving your hand in front of a sensor creates a corresponding sound from the rack-- on the other side of the station. People on opposite platforms or opposite ends of the same platform can interact using the instrument; artist Christopher Janney conceived the piece as a way to promote exchange between strangers.
