The Subway Token


Though made obsolete by the Metrocard, the subway token represents admission to what amounts to the circulatory system of New York.
The vital environment of the subways, from the graffiti covered years to the new shiny silver cars, is a critically important part of experiencing the city, whether a resident or a tourist.
The token is a tangible representation of the history of life here in NYC.
