Nostalgia Ride: Woodlawn Cemetery

October 6, 2019 | 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$50 / $35 Museum Members

Join the New York Transit Museum as we venture uptown from Grand Central Terminal to Woodlawn Cemetery on WWI-era Lo-V subway cars. Woodlawn station, designed by the subway’s chief architect Squire Vickers, opened in the Bronx on April 15, 1918. The subway’s arrival helped spur development of the area, which had begun following the opening of the cemetery in 1863.  During a 3-hour visit, guests will enjoy guided tours of Woodlawn Cemetery to learn about some of the famous businessmen, authors, artists, and musicians who reside there.
