One Response to New York Transit Museum Grand Central Terminal Store Reopens

  1. The New York Transit Museum is taking a few of its ‘exhibits’ out for a spin, offering an unforgettable adventure July 31 and August 21, 2010, 10 AM to 5 PM. Passengers will experience the flickering lights, soft seating, and gentle rumble of 1930s and 1940s subway travel onboard the Museum fleet of pre-WWII R 1/9 subway cars.

    Be sure not to miss the double dose of Nostalgia in August, as the rail fleet travels to the Rockaways for day-long bus rides onboard the fleet of historic buses from the 1940s and 1950s. Says Roxanne Robertson, director of special projects at the New York Transit Museum, “Nostalgia Train and Bus excursions offer the public a chance to relax and enjoy the ride. While most people are focused on their commute from point “A” to point “B,” Nostalgia excursions are about the journey and the equipment, not about rushing to the next destination.”

    Both Nostalgia Train excursions will depart from the New York Transit Museum’s decommissioned Court Street subway station at the corner of Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn Heights. Tickets are still available for the remaining two excursions — Adults: $45; Children $20; Museum Members $30; and Children of Museum Members $15. For tickets and reservations call (718) 694-1867. Sorry, stollers are not permitted.
