Exciting news for Bowie fans. There’s a David Bowie-themed takeover at the Broadway-Lafayette station. The takeover is a clever ad campaign promoting the current Bowie exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum, but fans are definitely going to want to grab one of the limited edition metrocards:
As Bowery Boogie notes, the Broadway-Lafayette station, which is just a few blocks from where Bowie used to live in Soho, has been transformed into a tribute/installation (and an ad for ‘David Bowie Is’) to him. There are more traditional ad-looking pieces, but also some that made use of the station’s architecture, and a replication of the “David Bowery” graffiti’d street sign that popped up. There’s also a giant outdoor ad on Houston at Broadway above the station.
Perhaps more exciting is a series of Bowie MetroCards which you can get at the Broadway-Lafayette station, which you can keep collected with your Twin Peaks and Supreme MetroCards.
