Strange Things I've Lugged on the Subway

I've lived in Brooklyn since 1996; first in Greenpoint and now in Park Slope. I save lots of money not owning a car, but there are a few times I wish I'd had a car...Like when there wasn't a ladder for tenants to use in Greenpoint apartment and I need to change a light bulb in a ceiling fixture. The Super never seemed to be around, so I went to Kmart and bought a six foot ladder, which I dragged on the subway; I got lots of quizzical looks from my fellow riders.

Over the years I've also brought a 5 foot fan on a stand, a large garbage can for my kitchen, and most recently a space heater for my home office. The guys at Bed, Bath and Beyond tied handles to the box, so carrying it was a breeze!
