New York Transit Museum

Boerum Place & Schermerhorn St. Brooklyn, NY 11201 | Brooklyn Heights | 718-694-1600

Location Description:

Between the documentation of the brutal working conditions faced by immigrants who built the subway station and the 12 variations of turnstile, it's easy to overload on MTA history and bits of obsolete machinery here. Nevertheless, it's kind of cool to walk through every subway car design from 1904 to the present. Hours: Tue-Fri 10am-4pm, Sat & Sun noon-5pm Gallery Annex hours: Mon-Fri, 8 am-8pm; Sat & Sun 10am-6pm.
