Virtual Experience: Old City Hall Station
Wednesday, April 10th, 2024, 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.

Public transportation remains one of the most effective ways to reduce greenhouse emissions and manage the rising threats of climate change. The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) has led the development of technologies and strategies to move millions sustainably, conserve energy, recycle resources, and increase efficiency.

Join us in celebrating Earth Day with Thomas Abdallah, the MTA’s Chief Environmental Engineer. With almost four decades of experience in the field, Abdallah will take us through some of the MTA’s past, current, and future efforts to achieve environmental sustainability, from electric buses to regenerative braking and rainwater collection.
