Public transportation is one of the greenest ways to get around the city. At the New York Transit Museum — housed in a repurposed historic IND subway station — you can learn all about New York’s transportation history through the museum’s rich collections of photographs, maps, drawings, documents, and other ephemera. It is the largest museum in the United States devoted to urban public transportation history, and one of the premier institutions of its kind in the world. The museum explores the development of the greater New York Metropolitan region through the presentations of exhibitions, tours, educational programs, and workshops dealing with the cultural, social, and technological history of public transportation. Since it’s inception over a quarter century ago, the museum has grown in scope and popularity.
