Manhattan Subway Baby/Bébé Métro New-York (En/Fr)


Photograph from EBay Seller "Linagem79"

Remember the iPodified babies? Well, when I was writing my post on the Subway iPods, earlier today, look what I found on eBay. You don't have a subway map on you? No problem, just put it on the baby! I'm surprised the GAP didn't think of that yet.

Vous vous souvenez des bébés iPodifiés? Eh bien, quand j'ecrivais mon billet sur les plans de Métro pour iPods tout à l'heure, devinez ce que j'ai trouvé sur sur eBay. Pas de plan de Métro sur vous? Pas de probleme, mettez en un sur le bébé! Ca m'étonne que le GAP n'y ait pas encore pensé.

They sell shower curtains and all kinds of other junk with the subway map design at the MTA shops and transit museums. They can't get me home to Brooklyn in a reliable fashion, but they have shower curtains and baby clothes!

Salut, Diopter!

Isn't it typical, though? When I lived in Paris I complained a lot about the subway smell, the fact that we were all packed like sardines in a can, it was late, on strike, etc., etc. Yet, I get real nostalgic just thinking about it now. I'll have to check out the MTA's website and see how much they charge for shower curtains with a NY subway map on it. Could be kind of cool.

Oui, c'est vrai.

And if coasters, baby clothes and mugs aren't enough, you can buy surplus inventory and machine parts!

I see...

"Operating Levers, Mounting Brackets Hanger Bolts, Elbow Pipes, Piston Rings, Exhaust Vents and more ..."

And I'm always looking for US souvenirs to bring back to the family in France... How about an elbow pipe from Mahattan?

Thanks for the link, Diopter! :-)

What a lovely keepsake an elbow pipe would be! Could you imagine trying to get that thing on a plane? hahahahaha

I especially wonder what my mother, my father, or anybody else over there would do with that. But hey, I also saw on eBay a while back some guy trying to sell for big money pieces of the Metro of Paris...

Takes all kind.

Wow. Hurrah for free (albeit ridiculous) enterprise, I suppose?
