Digital Discussion: 1 Train
Wednesday, February 9, 2022
Free Online Program
The 1 train travels along part of New York’s original subway line, connecting Manhattan with the Bronx. Riding the 1 train can take you from the deepest station in the New York City subway system to one of the last remaining elevated tracks in Manhattan. Originally known as IRT Broadway-Seventh Avenue Local, the line grew out of two monumental construction efforts. The first stretch opened north of 42nd St between 1904 and 1908; the second, south of 42nd Street, opened in 1918.
Join Museum Educator Kate Lanceley for a digital discussion to explore the history of the 1 train line. Discover fun facts and interesting details about the construction process, the decommissioned South Ferry loop station, and the line’s unique architectural features.
