Public transportation is crucial to the vitality of New York City, evolving to serve the needs of an expanding population and connecting people to one another. After the arrival of the IRT subway lines in 1904 and the IND lines in the 1930s, Harlem and then Bedford Stuyvesant became centers of Black culture and life in the city. Join Content Manager, Polly Desjarlais, for a virtual talk to explore the opportunities and connections that public transit provided in and between these two neighborhoods in Manhattan and Brooklyn, as well as some of the obstacles and challenges the communities faced.
