Nostalgia Ride: Remembering the Myrtle Avenue Elevated

Sunday, August 18 | 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
NY United States
SOLD OUT

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the closing of the Myrtle Avenue Elevated (El), we will venture along the El’s route, the current M and J lines. A major commuter train constructed to connect the residents of Ridgewood and surrounding communities to the business hubs of Downtown Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan, the Myrtle Avenue Elevated played an important role in accelerating the transition of the surrounding neighborhood from rural to urban life.  Our R1-9 cars and BU Gate cars will depart from Delancey/Essex Street in Manhattan, and will travel as far as 111th Street with a stop along the way for lunch on your own, and will return to Delancey/Essex street at 5 pm.

Nostalgia Ride: Woodlawn Cemetery

Sunday, October 6 | 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.
