Most New Yorkers have a MetroCard graveyard either in their backpack, handbag or junk drawer, but Beatles fans will want to reserve a special place for this “Ticket to Ride.” That is, if you can get your hands on one.
Following the David Bowie-branded MetroCard hysteria, another British icon has hopped on the commemorative MetroCard bandwagon: Paul McCartney. The limited-edition McCartney swipes are meant to promote the former Beatles’ seventh solo album, Egypt Station, and are currently available at the Grand Central-42nd St station.
Hit up one of the larger vending machines and station booths while supplies last (Or, if you simply need to have a card on lock, one is currently going for $42.98 on Ebay). Money can't buy you love, but it sure can buy you kitschy MetroCards!
According to DoNYC, McCartney is live streaming “an intimate concert” tomorrow from a top-secret venue in New York, so get ready for some extended Beatlemania. And you never know where the icon may show up in Gotham while he's here. Around this time last year, the rock star graced the stage of East Village haunt Club Cumming and sang Disney songs with actress Emma Stone.
So keep your eyes peeled for any McCartney sightings! Judging by his Twitter page, we know he likes to peep Washington Square Park. And to any of your friends who already secured their McCartney MetroCard, you can give them a “Fuh You.”Share the story
