Authentic Wooden Subway Benches Available

Our familiar wooden subway benches have been an iconic part of the subway experience for more than 30 years. As we gradually transition toward ergonomic metal benches that are less costly to maintain, we will be making a select number of wooden benches available for the price of $650 each.

Every wooden bench comes directly from the New York City Subway system and will come with its own certificate of authenticity. The benches are 10'7" wide, 1'8" deep, 2'7" tall and are designed to seat six people. If you're interested in purchasing one, visit the Memorabilia & Collectibles page within MTA New York City Transit's division of Asset Recovery.
