Meryl Streep Gets Unique 72nd Birthday Gift
Meryl Streep‘s birthday was honoured this year by the N.Y.C. subway as the 72 Street signs were changed to read “72 Streep”.
Artist and photographer Adrian Wilson and production designer Matt Duncan were behind the gift idea.
To honour the three-time Academy Award-winning actress, the two joined forces to change 72nd Street subway signs.

Wilson spoke with The New York Post to explain his reasoning behind the unique gift.
“It was one of these ideas that you have and you’re just like, ‘That’s so perfect’ — and she’s a national treasure, so everyone’s going to love it,”
