Digital Discussion – The Chrystie Street Connection
August 31, 2020 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm$10/Free for Members
In November 1967 and July 1968, the New York City Transit Authority introduced a series of new and revised train services on today’s B Division train routes (or lettered lines) that would ultimately provide commuters between Brooklyn and Manhattan with greater route flexibility and travel options. Conceived in 1947 and completed between 1957 – 1968, this landmark project was known as the Chrystie Street Connection and included five separate sections of new construction that stretched from Dekalb Avenue in Brooklyn to 57th Street in Manhattan.
Join transit historian and CUNY professor Andrew Sparberg for an illustrated lecture about the Chrystie Street Connection, one of New York City’s most important subway construction projects to date.
Limited spots available! RSVP NOW!
