Sometimes it's hard to find a seat on the subway.
Sometimes you wish you were reclining across two seats of brown leather on your way home, instead of elbowed in between two other commuters on a cold piece of yellow plastic. One straphanger has found a solution to both problems.
In the video you see the man drag his sofa from the platform onto the subway and then sit on the couch during the ride.
Over on Reddit, another witness said he walked by the man around 6 p.m. Monday near the 23rd Street subway station.
"So, basically, that thing resting on the couch beside him is either a folded-up wheelchair or walker, I couldn't tell, but he had the couch f****** BALANCED on it on the back bottom edge, and was wheeling it down the sidewalk swearing loudly and jumping from one end to the other as it kept starting to tip off the tiny wheelchair thing," AlterdCarbon wrote.
Meanwhile members of a Bushwick Facebook group were having fun with the video. One user posted an image of a similar-looking couch to the group: "HELP...My apartment was burglarized and someone stole my sofa. If anyone has any info on its whereabouts please let me know," he wrote.
"Nobody stole it," Eddie Bermudez responded. "It ran away with another man. I saw them on the train and he was ALL over it..."
