Transit Talks on Senior Wednesdays

Wednesday, June 6 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

FREE

The New York City Subway system is known for its amazing public art installations and for the tile and mosaic signage that adorn the walls of stations throughout the city. Taking over in 1906, Squire Vickers, system architect for almost 30 years, was responsible for the building and designing of a staggering 300 plus stations. Join us for a conversation about the man and his work while visiting some vintage subway cars and examining artifacts from the museum’s archive not usually on display.


Please note: There will be no Transit Talks on Senior Wednesdays in July due to the July 4th holiday. We’ll see you in August!

Transit Talks on Senior Wednesdays allow visitors to relive the experience of traveling through New York City during the twentieth century! During Transit Talks, seniors ages 62+ have the opportunity to explore our hands-on collection of vintage subway and elevated cars and discover the history, technology, design and future of transportation.
