Jun 25 | Tue | 2PM - 3PM |
View Website

New York's transportation history happened in phases, from early ships, trains and passenger ferries to more modern subways, trains, buses and cars. Transportation maps highlight the story of New York's growth through the increasingly connected transportation system. Indeed, mass transit helped make the greater New York region what it is today. Join Curator Kathleen Hulser and Research Archivist Rebecca Haggerty for a gallery talk of Navigating New York, which draws on the New York Transit Museum's collection, artistic renderings, historic maps, guidebooks and digital technology that refresh our view of the city and show how transportation has catalyzed its development.

Venue: New York Transit Museum
