Every NYC subway rider's dream is to make enough money to no longer ride the subway.
Most of the time, we are just subjected to crazy things on the subway.
Loud yellers, gospel readers, general inconsideration, others in our space, etc...
But what if we could book first class rides on the train?
In the most L train thing to ever happen, two men in shirts and ties were serving sparkling cider and hot towels to L train passengers on Thursday night in Brooklyn.
Check it out.

There is no such thing as a first class subway experience.
But these guys went the extra mile to put on a full show.

The next most Brooklyn thing to ever happen was the $100 tab that came with the "first class experience."
According to Patch:
"Those who did indulge in the first-class treatment were given tabs, like those given at a restaurant, at the end of their ride, Wilson said. Inside a check book was a bill that read 'First Class Subway Car Experience – $100'."
"They then repeatedly asked everyone to pay their tab," Korsha Wilson, the Tweeter of the event, said.
"No one did."

The two men were also reportedly being filmed by a third party, but they would not divulge for what.

The men reportedly got on at first avenue and got off at Lorimer—meaning only people who lived in Williamsburg were treated to the "first-class subway experience."

So, for those of you who live in New York and recognize the names of the neighborhoods, you know it was only the "wealthy hipsters" subject to this.
We'll keep you posted if it shows up online somewhere else.
