Description

Village Voice's 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.

    Great place to take kids, or to go yourself if want to find out more about the history of mass transit in NYC. Lots of hands on exhibits makes it very kid friendly. It is inside a real working subway station so take the same precautions with young kids as you would in a regular subway station. No touching the 3rd rail.
