NYC Subway Marking 110th Birthday With Vintage Cars


The New York City subway system is celebrating its 110th birthday with a party on Saturday at their museum in a historic subway station in Brooklyn Heights.

The system opened in 1904 with the Interborough Rapid Transit line that ran from City Hall to 145th Street. There were 28 stations, compared to 468 now.

Visitors will be able to ride vintage cars dating to the 1930s between the museum and the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station in Brooklyn. Costumed interpreters will talk about the subway’s history.
