Boardwalk Empire will be running two promotions with the MTA. Starting on Saturday and running through weekends in September, the 2/3 lines will be using throwback trains from the 1920s, which is basically the same as the subway cars they currently have running.
The show’s second promotion takes place on September 24th and 25th and has the potential to cause a riot. They’ll be handing out free MetroCards to passengers at the 2/3 stations at Times Square and 72nd Street. Im lucky enough to walk to work, and thank god. Theres going to be some serious battles going on for those free metros. At $105 bucks for an unlimited, every little free hand out helps!
