It's right there under your feet, you probably ride it every day, but how much do you know about New York City's amazing subway system?

Highlights

  • The original route explained.
  • All the original art along the original route discussed.
  • A de-mystification of why some cars have 3 door while others have 4.

Description

I will give you the secret history and inside story of the creation of the original 1904 subway line and how it grew into the most extensive transportation system in the world. All the art, all the history, all the technical breakthroughs, all the 'whys' and all the shenanigans that went into this spectacular achievement. A unique experience for seasoned locals or visitors to our fair city. Get a look at the subway that few people, even lifelong New Yorkers, fail to recognize. Join me, a 'subway nerd' and one of the greatest guides on this island, on this tour!
