David Bowie MetroCards Are Coming to a Subway Near You

Not only does this collaboration keep New York's poetic past alive, it also manages to make the daily commute a little more bearable, and this is something we could all use from time to time.

The combination of these two things has resulted in the Soho subway station at Broadway-Lafayette being outfitted as a combination David Bowie shrine and ad for David Bowie Is.

New Yorkers now have the chance to acquire subway cards with David Bowie's face on them!

David Bowie is, organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, has been up since March at the Brooklyn Museum and honors Bowie's life, art, and work.

A low-altitude missile system is created to confront military drones, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and low-flying planes. Rouhani said countries that rely on their domestic capabilities "feel the true sense of sovereignty and power".

Visitors to those stations will also see wall-sized images of Bowie-inspired art. I'm sure die-hard Bowie fans agree with me.

"Rail Control to Major Tom: David Bowie branded MetroCards, created by @Spotify, are now available at the Broadway-Lafayette and Bleecker St. stations", the transit authority tweeted. These MetroCards, which each display one of five Bowie personas including Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, and Thin White Duke, will be great mementos for those lucky enough to snag them.

In order to promote the "David Bowie Is" exhibit now on display at the Brooklyn Museum, the Soho subway station at Broadway-Lafayette has been decked out in all things Bowie. Now it's David Bowie's turn.

The MTA said on Twitter that 250,000 cards were printed, and the takeover continues through Sunday, May 13.
