In 2002 artist George Greenamyer built several large kinetic sculptures for the new NJ Transit waiting room in New York City's Penn Station. Greenamyer crafted representations of possible places that train riders to New Jersey might visit, using people and creatures instead of buildings. The sculptures include the flame-red Jersey Devil, George Washington, Thomas Edison, Miss America beauty queens, and an apparently colossal Mr. Peanut holding Lucy the Margate Elephant in his gloved hand.
