We totally get why this straphanger needed to bring an armchair onto the L - those seats can get hard and uncomfortable after a while! (Sometimes swings are more comfy, too.) We don't think the color goes with the L's austere pale blue and silver scheme, but maybe we're supposed to respond to the eclectic juxtaposition of objects.
Actually, this just makes us wonder what's the most unwieldy object you've ever transported via the train? Of course there are bikes, heavy suitcases, and double wide strollers, but we've been noticing a couple air-conditioners ride the rails lately. And then there's that big fish.
Do you have any tips for moving large object by subway?
