We have come a long way since horse and carriages transported the population of New York City from place to place! The New York City Transit Museum is an amazing place where you will see how the infrastructure and the actual modes of transporting the city developed. Join us for a special guided tour through history given by one of the transit museum workers where you will have a chance to learn and socialize with others from our group. The best part is that you will actually get to walk into onld subway cars and buses from the early 1900's!!
The actual museum is a decommissioned subway station that was built in 1936. It has a mezzanine level that features the history of the bridges, tunnels and street level transportation. Actual trolleys, buses, token booths, turnstiles and more are on display with tons of photo exhibits that show the building of the bridges, tunnels and more. The coolest part is when you walk down to the subway platform and get to actually walk through the elevated train cars and subway cars from the 1870's -1970's!! You will be amazed at how much has changed.
How it works: The group will meet on the corner of Schermerhorn and Boerum Place at 11:30am sharp. You will take the tour then you can stay and browse on your own or head out for a snack with the group at a local tavern.
