To get to work, Owen heads into the New York City subway system run by the New York City Transit Authority, the entity before the current Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA). He tries to pay at the retro looking vending machines (added for the set) at the 57th Street N/Q/R/Q line but by the time he gets underground, having enlisted the help of AdBuddy to pay for his fare, he’s shown to be at the 2nd Avenue subway station.
However, savvy transit goers will notice that this station is actually the Bowery J/M/Z subway station with its single platform and dark red columns. This station is frequently shown in television shows, and has been seen in Mr. Robot. It has an abandoned lower level platform that is used for drills by the MTA and NYPD.
