Metro card bridge

This guy was marching in the Mermaid parade wearing a Brooklyn Bridge on his head made completely out of metro cards. (Metro cards are used to pay for subway rides.) There was also a woman with an Empire State Building and a few other creations. They were really neat! They were also handing out various things made out of the cards like necklackes and shoes. It was a good way to recycle the used cards!

Magnifique ce chapeau, un beau travail, il mérite d'aller dans le musée du métro de NYC.
Splendid this hat, a nice job, it is worth going to the museum of the subway of NYC.

Great to think of the idea, then actually construct it. The Mermaid Parade has become quite an annual event.
