(5 reviews)

Overview

2 hoursMobile & paper tickets accepted

Take a ride through the living history of the world’s largest rapid transit system by weaving in and out of the past and present transit hubs of lower Manhattan! This unique tour is designed to give a comprehensive history of the NYC Subway system, from its groundbreaking in 1901 up through the creation of the three different proprietary lines which were unified into the system we know today. We’ll uncover information and learn about spaces even the most seasoned commuter might not know about.

This tour will stop in stations that are all open to the public. Using the 6 train as a ten-car time machine, ride through and see three abandoned ghost stations that 4, 5, and 6 riders unknowingly pass through everyday: Worth Street and the famed City Hall Station. This tour will not stop inside these stations.
