Underground and onboard with New York's antique subways

The entrance isn't easy to find. At the corner of Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn is a single subway entrance. And on the corner of the building above it is a simple sign stating "New York City transit museum." Head down the stairs and in to one of New York's best small museums. The bi-level unused subway station has been turned into a museum of how people have moved about in New York for centuries. There's exhibits on subway construction and operation, but the real thrill is on the lower level. Along the tracks sit two dozen historic train cars. Some are over a hundred years old and date back to when all of New York's mass transit was elevated. Each features original seats, maps, and ads adorning the walls. And keep an eye on their website for special events when they take the trains out and run them on the active tracks in regular service. They do it every year on December Sundays and for other unique events throughout the year.
