Jokers Turned a Subway Station into a Spa

By Wendy Rodewald-Sulz / August 5, 2014

Bikram-hot subway platforms are a fact of life in the summer, so it’s about time someone put that schvitz-inducing atmosphere to good use. Welcome to the 34th Street Spa, a new underground destination for all your relaxation needs. Hot stone massages, detox steam rooms and citrus-and-cucumber infused water are just a few of the amenities offered on the N/R/Q platform thanks to comedy group Improv Everywhere. For an afternoon, the pranksters transformed the midtown subway station into a popup spa, complete with massage tables and patrons in towels — all of which you can watch in this video. The soothing subterranean resort may be a joke, but that glass of cool cucumber water sure would hit the spot on our commute home later.
