As the NY Subway system winds down its massive renovation program, a great deal of the tile used in the stations is sitting around looking for a home. Material Designs, a local company who has been employed by the city to manufacture and install station mosaics has around 400 linear feet of tile they are willing to sell. You can buy just the colors you want ("Hey, I would like 77th and Lexington's colors, please.") or a finished piece (above).
Tiles go for $14 a square foot and finished signage goes from $285 to $2,200 depending on length. (Thanks, Kim!) MGR
