An improv group turns part of a New York City subway into a sleeper car for late-night passengers.
For the price of a subway ticket, a few lucky travelers got lucky one night and caught some shuteye and comfort while on the train. Improv Everywhere, sponsored by the Guggenheim Museum’s stillspotting NYC exhibit, brought three beds, including comforter, sheets and pillows onto one subway car and offered pajamas, sleep masks and earplugs for the other folks nearby.
This was an “unauthorized free service” that took place as part of an improv act on the N train through Astoria, Queens on a late Sunday night.
Would you ever use a service like this?
