Transit Walk: The Transformation of Downtown Brooklyn

Public transit has defined and transformed New York City over and over again. Delve into one rich example by taking a close look at Downtown Brooklyn through the lens of mass transit. Led by educators from the New York Transit Museum, we’ll visit Court Street, Columbus Park, the commercial center at Fulton Mall, and the Transit Museum itself. Explore, observe, and discuss the impact of transit progress on this community. The tour concludes with complimentary admission to the New York Transit Museum, light refreshments, and an informal discussion. Located in an authentic 1930s subway station, the New York Transit Museum presents hands-on exhibits that celebrate the many ways that public transportation impacts New York City and its environs.
