2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Interborough Rapid Transit (IRT) Pelham Line, a line that played a crucial role in the development of The Bronx, New York City’s first borough. Constructed as an extension of the IRT Lexington Avenue Line under the Dual Contracts expansion of 1913, the IRT Pelham Line has a unique history that is inextricable from the story of the borough.
Join Museum Educator Tiara Torres for a digital discussion that explores the history of transportation in The Bronx and the development and opening of the IRT Pelham Line. Discover how the construction of the line drastically transformed New York City’s landscape.
