Transit Talks on Senior Wednesdays

November 7, 2018 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free for Seniors

November 1, 2018 marks the 100th Anniversary of the Malbone Street Wreck, the worst subway accident in the history of New York City. As we remember the tragic events of that day, we honor those who lost their lives and the families who were affected. We also recognize that disasters such as this can be the catalyst for change and improvements to help prevent such tragedies from happening again. During November’s Transit Talk, we’ll explore the history of the event and its aftermath, the ramifications of which can still be felt today.

Transit Talks on Senior Wednesdays are free, and pre-Registration is not required for drop-in events. Seniors ages 62+ receive free admission every Wednesday.
