Two New York City artists renamed a subway stop in Manhattan in honor of acting legend Meryl Streep, who turned 72 on Tuesday. 

Photographer Adrian Wilson and his friend Matt Duncan altered the signs at the 72nd Street station in Manhattan to read “72nd Streep” as a tribute to the “Devil Wears Prada” star. 

“It was one of these ideas that you have and you’re just like, ‘That’s so perfect,'” Wilson told the New York Post. “She’s a national treasure, so everyone’s going to love it.” 

Wilson and Duncan used easily removable stickers to cover up the last “t” on the subway stop’s sign, thereby changing “Street” to “Streep.”

Wilson shared images of the altered signs on his Instagram, along with the title of the installation: “Subway Becomes Her,” an apparent reference to Streep’s 1992 film “Death Becomes Her.”

“Happy 72nd birthday Meryl,” he captioned the photos. 

Duncan also shared photos to his Instagram account, along with a similar birthday message for Streep.

Streep has starred in a wide variety of films, including “Sophie’s Choice,” “Julie & Julia,” and “The Post.” Throughout her career, she’s received numerous accolades, including three Academy Awards and eight Golden Globes.
