Underground Manhattan: Exploring the History of the NYC Subway System with NYC Tour Guide Gary Dennis
Time: 5:30 pm-6:30 pm
It’s right there under your feet when you visit NYC. You may have even ridden it many times in your life. But how much do you really know about New York City’s subway system?
Join us as we explore the history of the New York City subway system. Opening in 1904 with a single line serving 28 stations, the City of New York’s subway system has since grown to encompass 472 stations and over 245 miles of tracks, serving nearly 6 million riders per day.
Led by transit expert and licensed NYC tour guide Gary Dennis, our fast-paced virtual subterranean exploration of the world’s largest rapid transit system will include an overview of the New York Public transportation system, the history and inside story of the creation of the original 1904 subway line, a closer look at the art, architecture, and secrets hiding plain sight of stations including the Brooklyn Bridge — City Hall, Astor Place, and Times Square.
This program also features Q&A, where any and all questions about the NYC subway systems are welcomed and encouraged!
