With all the moving going on, we look around our home, realizing that three of our largest furnishings reached our place via the MTA. Our dining table (expands to seven-foot length), drafting table (with heavy metal base), and a side chair were all carried to our apartment on foot, then subway, then back on foot. Which brings us to the photo above...

That's actually from a video of a couple moving a couch on the subway. Check it out right here at YouTube. The spectacle of it brings back memories of getting our finds back to our place. Our best tip: move large items as late at night as you can manage midweek. It's the best way to beat the crowds and inconvenience as few folks as possible. What outrageous items have you moved with the help of the MTA?
