For those who don't want their commute to end, this cavernous below-ground store in Boerum Hill—there's also a satellite location in Grand Central Terminal—offers plenty of colorful, subway-themed goodies to bring home. The bulk of the collection is devoted to line-specific T-shirts, caps, mugs, and magnets—each plastered with the circular logo of a given route. But designs utilizing the iconic subway map are equally popular, making it possible to get directions by glancing at your mouse pad, oven mitt, or even vinyl shower curtain. Kids will relish the many (non-MTA) train toys and books, while adults may fancy the modest assortment of cuff links, bracelets, and keychains made with actual pre-MetroCard–era tokens. There are books for grown-ups, as well, describing the construction of Grand Central, the subway, and bus system, though the selection is pretty sparse.
