“They said it was the best ‘art installation’ of the year!” Rogers joked.

But he added that because of the temporary building wall built around the bus, it resembles an art structure with a few small plexiglass windows for the audience to try.

The bus is still in place, and construction crews are stabilizing the building until the bus is removed.

“When else do you see a bus stuck in a building? From what I heard, it was a sight to behold. I was curious to see what it actually looked like, ”he said.

Locals, 76-year-old Bob Marvin, said he has seen a clear increase in pedestrian traffic in the area since Monday.

“You don’t usually see people hanging around this corner,” Marvin said.

According to the DOB, time is running out for those interested in seeing the bizarre scenery, as contractors can finish their work on the building on Thursday night, as the bus can be removed once the arrangements are made.

But even if the walls are shortened, some parts of the building’s facade may shift during the removal of the bus, the DOB said in a statement.

MTA spokeswoman Kayla Schulz said in a statement on Thursday: “We are ready to remove the bus if the city allows us.”
