The 1 train service, also known as the IRT Broadway-Seventh Avenue Local, makes local stops from South Ferry in Manhattan to 242nd St in the Bronx.  The deepest station in the New York City subway system, and the only remaining section of elevated subway track in Manhattan, can both be found along the 1 line. Construction occurred in two major sections: the first, part of New York’s original subway line, opened north of 42nd St between 1904 and 1908; the second was constructed south of 42nd St under the Dual Contracts and opened in 1918.

Join Museum Educator Kate Lanceley for a digital discussion to explore the history of the 1 train line. Discover details about the line including its unique architectural features, various construction challenges, and interesting facts about the decommissioned South Ferry loop station.
