HELL’S KITCHEN — A new exhibit inside the Port Authority Bus Terminal’s art gallery uses the transit hub itself as its subject.

“PABT Time Lapse 2017” — an exhibit that includes time-lapse videos created by photographer Tony Gregory, who bartends at Heartland Brewery next to the terminal's Eighth Avenue entrance  — captures scenes of the thousands of buses and passengers that travel through the depot every day.

The videos will play on loop in a gallery space in the terminal’s south wing, located on the main level near the Ninth Avenue entrance, until the end of April, a spokesman said. The exhibit also includes still photos Gregory took in and around the terminal.

“As a photographer/filmmaker and New Yorker, I have always been fascinated by seeing locations around the city captured on film,” Gregory told the Port Authority’s blog.

He decided to document bus and foot traffic to and from the terminal after learning the Port Authority planned to replace it with a new facility, he added.

“I thought there was no better time to document the building and its surroundings,” he told the blog. “So that in the future, people can enjoy seeing what this neighborhood of NYC once looked like.”
