It’s Free to Look: An MTA-rific Penthouse Made of Subway Cars

If you didn’t spend Monday night on a frigid, claustrophobic subway car and somehow regret it, The Observer has found the perfect home for hip singles and mole people alike.

For those wealthy enough never to have bought a Metro pass in their lives who somehow feel they’re missing out on the experience, this West Village pad was designed by architect Adam Kushner out of subway tiles and subway doors. The “sexy, unconventional, truly one-of-a-kind” penthouse, as the listing calls it, certainly is that.  Mr. Kushner was, the listing says, inspired by “the city he loves.” Because goodness knows all New Yorkers have a soft spot for the MTA.

Listed for $1.995 million with Sotheby’s Diane Wildowsky, the apartment also features a pebbled meditation pool that doubles as a working shower and a curved white bedroom that, the listing says, “feels like you’re sleeping on a cloud.” Or the N line, if you prefer.
