Six years ago, the Greater New York Councils began the Big Apple Series; a collection of CSP’s that highlight and share the icons of New York City with our Scouting Family worldwide. Following the Tribute in Light Edition, the Freedom Tower Edition, and last year’s Rockefeller Holiday Edition, GNYC is proud to release the NYC Subway Edition CSP.
In a city full of icons, it can be easy to overlook the subway system because so much of it runs underground. However, with average weekday riders numbering over 5.5 million, this conduit of commuters helps keeps the busiest city running 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week. And as many visitors discover, the subway is not only the most economical and efficient way to travel around the city, but it is also an experience unto itself.
To celebrate the New York City subway system, the Greater New York Councils is proud to lend its name to this fictitious station entrance. And while the B train, S train and A train all exist in the NYC subway network, they do not ever all intersect at the same station. The patches come in two different versions – the standard black border or the gold version special mylar border and fleur-de-lis.
Please note, the gold version is sold out.
