Buy Your Own Subway Doors, $175/pair


NYC the Blog stumbled upon the MTA’s Assets & Collectibles page, where each month they put out a new batch of old subway detritrus that you can buy. This month’s pickings are pretty slim, but we’re sure you know somebody who’d like an A train line sign that really lights up (only $180 with power cord), an authentic MTA logo plate ($125 — “LIMITED QUANTITIES!”), or a pair of subway doors ($175). For the truly hardcore rapid transit nerd, there are surplus materials, including toll lane scrubbers that you can use to clean gum off your sidewalk (best offer!).
