Join us once a month for Transit After-Hours: a series of conversations, presentations, workshops, and performances inspired by Transit Museum exhibitions and collections. Come together online, share ideas, and learn about transit and NYC history.
We have countless interactions with our fellow passengers on public transit, whether a glance about a shared experience, a shuffle to get into a seat, or the rare exchange of a few words. We might see the same person every day for years on our commute and feel like we know them but never speak, spot a long-lost friend for a spontaneous reunion, or even strike up a conversation with a stranger over a book. Think back to some of your past subway rides: have you ever had an interesting conversation with another passenger or a made a connection with a stranger, even for a moment between stops?
Join us after-hours with Subway Social Club to virtually meet other strap-hangers and share some of your favorite public transit memories and stories. We’ll hear from the founder of Subway Social Club, Claire Feuer, and learn more about her organization and other projects that encourage meaningful interactions with others, even on the subway!
Then we will settle in, have some time to write down our thoughts in response to a few prompts, and will spend the majority of the program in Zoom breakout rooms to meet one another and share our favorite transit recollections.
Please Note: This discussion will take place online. Upon registration, all participants will receive a confirmation e-mail with instructions on how to participate. We encourage you to download the Zoom app in advance for the best user experience.
Thank you for supporting the Transit Museum!
