In true MTA form, we stopped by this booth to transfer our card balance but couldn't find an attendant. But we did find something else...
We were able to snap a few pics before an attendant reappeared. This cool garland is made from expired metro cards. (In New York, you can slide an expired card into a bin for the MTA to collect reuse, though usually not in this form!)
Spotting the garland almost made up for my lack of help! It's at Delancey if anyone wants to check it out.
