Come celebrate as MTA Bridges and Tunnels turns 90! Join archivists Mary Hedge and Nellie Hankins for a look behind the scenes and into the MTA Bridges and Tunnels Special Archive. Learn the story of the development of the region’s East River crossings through photos, maps, drawings, and artifacts, and explore the past of Bridges and Tunnels’s seven bridges and two tunnels. From its founding in 1933, through the Robert Moses era and the integration into the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the story of MTA Bridges and Tunnels reflects the story of New York itself.

Virtual Experience: Old City Hall Station
Thursday, April 27th, 2023, 2:00pm

City Hall is the ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of stations in the system! Designed by renowned architects Heins & LaFarge, the station featured innovative vaulted tile ceilings by master artisan Rafael Guastavino. Its elegant chandeliers, leaded skylights, and graceful curves inspired awe among visitors.  

In 1904, New York City’s very first subway ride left from the City Hall station amidst great civic pride. Join us online as we dive into the creation of the Interborough Rapid Transit Company, early subway construction, and the City Beautiful movement that led to that momentous day. We’ll look closely at the decorative flourishes of the decommissioned station with historic photographs from the Museum’s collection, maps, architectural drawings, and photos of the station today. RSVP here.
