An unknown person rearranged a mosaic panel to rename a New York City subway station after the late Justice Ruth Bader GinsburgRuth Bader GinsburgCourt watchers buzz about Breyer's possible retirement Five hot-button issues Biden didn't mention in his address to Congress Schumer waiting for recommendation on Supreme Court expansion MORE.

ABC7 New York tweeted out a video showing that someone changed the name of the city’s 50th Street subway station to “Ruth Street” after her death as Rosh Hashanah began. 

The name change occurred on a mosaic panel at the station on the C/E line, where the “50” was transformed into an “RU.” It is unclear who made the adjustment.


The tribute to Ginsburg follows after other subway station signs were changed after Aretha Franklin’s death in 2018 and Prince’s death in 2016. The recognition of Franklin later inspired the subway to put up black-and-white signs that said “Respect” at the Franklin Avenue stop.

Ginsburg, who served on the Supreme Court since 1993 and was a Brooklyn, N.Y., native, died of complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer Friday evening.
