An urban artist paid tribute to the late Eddie Van Halen by briefly turning the Van Siclen Avenue subway station in Brooklyn, New York into Van Halen Avenue.
Adrian Wilson is the name of the person in charge of making this wonder. Which consisted only of creating a sticker in the shape of the sign in the style of the New York subway and putting it on one of the walls of the Van Siclen Avenue station.
“I left it four days for someone else to [make a sticker] and head to Brooklyn and take the credit but nobody stepped up,” he wrote. So, he took it upon himself to memorialize Van Halen, even if just for a little while—according to Wilson’s Instagram, the sticker is now gone.

Come on people! I even explained on TV how this works and how easy it is. A famous person dies, look up the name of a subway stop and put a sticker over it to memorialize the person. It's that easy! I left it 4 days for someone else to [make a sticker] head to Brooklyn and take the credit but nobody stepped up, so ok, I guess I've got to do it myself… you're welcome. UPDATE: It's not there now.
He had previously paid a similar tribute to Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg last month. And even on October 11, Wilson explained in a post on Instagram that initially, he expected someone else to pay tribute to Eddie Van Halen with a similar trick in the subway station.
