We were reminded today by NYCtheBlog that the MTA regularly sells off stuff that they no longer want including your lost and found items. Then again, I guess if you never claim your lost items, they really aren’t yours anymore but I digress.
You can buy everything from toll lane scrubbers (little Zamboni looking things), to office chairs, to subway poles, to subway lights, to your lost iPod.
Sometimes they have really high end electronics that get lost and found too.
You can buy yourself a little piece of subway history right from the source. Check out the run down.
