Bringing Back the City: Mass Transit Responds to Crisis — Gallery Talk

August 28, 2018 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free with Museum Admission
Visitors view Bringing Back the City gallery at the New York Transit Museum

Bringing Back the City offers a unique perspective on the vital, often unseen, work of New York’s transit employees. Using the events of 9/11, the 2003 Northeast Blackout, Hurricane Sandy and other severe weather events as examples, the exhibition reveals the critical role that mass transit personnel play in preparing for and responding to natural and man-made disasters. Through a vibrant display of objects, photographs, media, and personal accounts, the exhibition highlights the technical and professional skills needed to restore public transportation service and get New Yorkers moving again after crisis strikes. Join Senior Manager of Exhibits Rob DelBagno for a gallery talk of the exhibit, on view through September 2, 2018.

Pre-Registration is not required for this drop-in event, which is included with your museum admission. Please see the Plan Your Visit page for information and directions.
