Chicago’s Drinking Modern pays tribute to our hometown’s “L” train, along with public transportation systems in London, New York, Paris, San Francisco, D.C., Boston, Philly, and Los Angeles. Each coaster set assembles to form a map of its urban subway or rail system. They’re made from white birch with a non-slip cork backing.
New York City’s public transit system carries millions of passengers each day, so it’s bound to have its share of items left behind on its seats and platforms. Vicente Cueto’s documentary short film tells the story of lost items and their owners, as told by Sonny Drayton of NYC’s Subways and Buses Lost & Found department.
The musicians of Apartment Sessions turn in an energetic rendition of Queen’s 1976 classic Somebody to Love, as performed in the cozy confines of a New York City subway car. While nobody will ever sing like Freddie Mercury, they make up for it with sheer enthusiasm.
If you’ve ever lived in a big city, you’ve probably spent a meaningful amount of time wandering underground tunnels on your way to or from subway trains. In Return’s engrossing short film takes us on a hypnotic ride through the public walkways of the London Underground.
