A large portion of the notes posted since Chavez started the project will be preserved, Cuomo said.
Since the election of Donald Trump, the walls of New York City's 14th Street Union Square subway station have become a release valve for grief-stricken New Yorkers, who, outside of Staten Island, overwhelmingly voted for Hillary Clinton.
A historical group on Friday began preserving thousands of sticky notes placed on the walls of a busy NY subway station over the past month to lament the election of Donald Trump as the next USA president.
Governor Andrew Cuomo says the Second Avenue Subway is on track to open on New Year's Eve.
Thousands of people have left messages in subway stations and tunnels since artist Matthew Levee Chavez created the project after the November 8 election. New York State holds the torch high!
"Over the last six weeks, New Yorkers have proved that we will not let fear and division define us".
The wall was created by artist Matthew Chavez after the election; he wanted to encourage New Yorkers to share their feelings. The society, located at 170 Central Park West, will also have. The idea was to spread inclusion and stress relief in the wake of a contentious and divisive moment in American politics - and New Yorkers ran with it. "I'm thrilled that we have found a way to work together to move the project and preserve it for others to experience in the future".
"We are ever-mindful of preserving the memory of today's events for future generations", the society's president, Louise Mirrer, said in a statement.
The museum will preserve a selection of notes as part of its History Responds program. Its curatorial team mobilizes to preserve objects from spontaneous moments of crisis or exhilaration, such as artifacts related to 9/11, marriage equality celebrations, and the Stonewall Inn vigil for Orlando nightclub shooting victims.
