Item of the Day

This is an ode to the New York City subway system, which bounced back impressively fast after Hurricane Sandy flooded its tunnels in an unprecedented storm surge.

For that reason alone, we’re giving a huge shout out to our beloved subways, and the iconic fare token (which we actually do remember using!).

Tokens might have bit the dust in 2003 to make way for Metrocards, but they will always have a special place in our hearts.

Luckily, NYC Subway Line, under exclusive license from New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority, is making handbags and other accessories featuring the iconic token design. We particularly love this Token Emboss Neoprene Tote,  complete with a rhinestone token dangle and single color subway map lining. There’s even a single color subway map lining.

Retail: $49.99.
