This is a real bathroom, but sadly, it's not in Brooklyn or anywhere in the five boroughs. It's actually in an apartment in Glasgow, Scotland, where it's not clear if trying to make your bathroom look like the DeKalb Avenue stop increases or decreases real estate values. It's a reproduction, but check out the attention to detail: "The background was filled in after the letters had set, with the whole thing finished with black grout for that 100 year-old subway grime effect." Apparently, visitors always say "wow" when they open the bathroom door. We bet they do.
