Tracing nearly 100 years of history, the Museum’s newest exhibit explores how the Second Avenue line fits into New York’s past, present, and future transportation landscapes. Through historic maps, objects, and numerous images from the New York Transit Museum’s collections, Next Stop: Second Avenue Subway illustrates the multiple steps and massive amounts of backbreaking work needed to bring the Second Avenue Subway to life. Join historian and author Andy Sparberg on Tuesday, August 29 for a gallery talk highlighting the Transit Museum’s newest exhibition about “the line that almost never was”.

Next Stop: Second Avenue Subway is generously supported by AECOM and Skanska. Additional support is provided by Walsh Construction Company. Exhibitions at the New York Transit Museum are made possible, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
