Grab a seat on a beach-bound Nostalgia Ride heading to the Rockaways! We’re celebrating summer by taking our 1930s R 1-9 vintage train cars on a trip from 96th Street-Second Avenue Station in Manhattan to Rockaway Park-Beach 116th Street in Queens. Bring a picnic and take a dip in the ocean, or enjoy an additional ride before heading out to explore the boardwalk. Ride our vintage trains back to the city at the end of the afternoon, departing Rockaway Park at 3pm and traveling back to 96th Street-Second Avenue Station in Manhattan, or stay for a longer day at the beach before making your own way home.


Please Note:

  • Nostalgia Rides run rain or shine. Equipment, route, timing, and duration are subject to change.
  • The train will depart 96th Street-2nd Avenue at 10am and we will travel to Rockaway Park-Beach 116th Street. The ride will last approximately 60 to 90 minutes.
  • Children ages 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult
