Boardwalk Empire To Run A Train On The MTA

09.01.11 Myles Tanzer

Boardwalk Empire, that show with everyone’s favorite TV ‘ho Paz de la Huerta, will be running two promotions with the MTA. Starting on Saturday and running through weekends in September, the 2/3 lines will be using throwback trains from the 1920s, which aren’t far off from the current trains running on those tracks.

The show’s second promotion takes place on September 24th and 25th and has the potential to cause a riot. They’ll be handing out free MetroCards to passengers at the 2/3 stations at Times Square and 72nd Street. Just one tip: don’t waste your time at stations filled with tourists who aren’t going to sit in their hotels to watch your show. Give ’em out to local NY’ers who have HBO at home and will watch your show.
