We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and practically stumbled onto this gem in Brooklyn. This place is located in an unused subway terminal and is a perfect combination of the history and technology of the early NY subway system throught the present. If you have the least bit of interest in how this system was built and how it operates, you will find something of interest here. And the price may be the biggest bargain in NYC ($5.00 per senior).
Kids should love the interactive technology demonstrations and models. Adults, too. And there are two levels below the street; the lowest level contains dozens of old and newer transit cars, all of which can be entered with period lighting and posters, lined up on either side of the platform.
We found a security guard who works there for MTA who was happy to tell us anything we wanted to know about the system, and then some. He pointed out some exhibits that we would have missed otherwise.
We visited on a weekday at about noon and there was no huge crowd to distract us. Skip some other attractiopns in NYC and venture over to Brooklyn to see this remarkable look into the MTA history.
