New York City Transit: Jamaica Yard Tour

Saturday, July 21 | 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Sold Out!
Two trains in Jamaica Yard

Serving the IND Queens Boulevard Line since it opened in 1936, Jamaica Yard currently serves more subway cars than any other yard in New York City. The area, originally swampland, has had many uses over time: during the American Revolution, it was occupied by British troops; a pumping station was on the site before it was turned over to the Board of Transportation; and the temporary World’s Fair Railroad passed through it in 1939-40. In 1965, car-washing machines were installed at the yard, and today’s R42 and R160 cars assigned to the E, F, and R lines receive car wash, interior cleaning, grease, and minor repair services here. Join Superintendent Vito Oliveri on this special Members-Only tour of Jamaica Yard to learn about the services performed here and plans for the yard in the future.

Crosstown Centennial: The 42nd Street Shuttle

Sunday, July 22 | 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Sold Out!
Opening Ceremony for the automated shuttle at Grand Central Station, January 1962 Object ID: 2005.48.287

On August 1, 1918, the subway tracks running between Times Square and Grand Central Terminal — part of the original subway line to serve New York City — were established as a shuttle to carry travelers between the two transit hubs; the next day, the shuttle had to be temporarily closed due to severe overcrowding. Since then, the 42nd Street Shuttle has been overhauled and its stations partly rebuilt, but it remains the major crosstown link in Midtown Manhattan. Join historian Joe Cunningham to explore a short subway line with a long history, and to learn about 100 years of transportation planning and technological innovation.
