Transit Walk: Malbone Street

Saturday, September 8 | 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
$30 / $25 for Museum Members
Workers and police stand among wreckage of the Malbone Street Wreck, 1918.

At 6:42 pm on November 1, 1918, a train of cars in a tunnel below Brooklyn’s Malbone Street derailed after its inexperienced operator took a curve meant to be traveled at 6 mph at more than 30. Join Senior Museum Educator Katherine Reeves to explore the neighborhood where the Malbone Street Wreck occurred, learn what contributed to the accident, and understand the far-reaching impacts of the deadliest subway accident in New York City history.
