If you happen to be in New York City, run over to the Broadway-Lafayette or Bleecker St. subway stations and snag a David Bowie-themed MetroCard. Yesterday, New York City Transit announced a series of limited edition MetroCards featuring images from his widely acclaimed art exhibit, David Bowie Is, which is being housed at the Brooklyn Museum until July 15, 2018. The cards will cost $6.50 and are scattered randomly in station booths.

Two years after his death, New York continues to mourn the loss of icon David Bowie—rightfully so considering SoHo was one of the few places he called home. Immediately after his death, murals featuring the musician's legendary profile cropped up in various neighborhoods across the island. You can even find him on light poles and wrought iron gates. NYC Transit has only printed 250,000 copies of the card, so if you're a fan, your opportunity to snatch one is quickly diminishing. Run, don't walk.
