Judy Cohen - Find Underground Fun
Summertime in the city means we’re always on the go, and for my active little boy who is obsessed with all things subways, trains and buses, I’m thankful for New York City’s world-class transportation system to keep him entertained as we travel. It’s not surprising that one of our favorite stops is the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn. With hands-on displays of electricity to show how subways work, a grouping of turnstiles from the subway’s beginnings to its current day models, replicas of past and present city buses where he can be the driver – or the passenger, and rows and rows of vintage and current subway cars to run around – this is a transportation junkie’s paradise. My little subway surfer now knows the MTA system better than most natives – and of course, wants his own MetroCard.
