The centennial of World War I will be recalled with a living history day inside the landmarked New York Transit Museum (nytransitmuseum.org
) with classic wooden cars that were on the tracks when the Doughboys fought in WWI. Come see living history, exhibitions, reenacting, and a phonograph playing century-old music from Michael Cumella (http://michaelcumella.com/phonographdj/index.html
). See men and women in uniform from the East Coast Doughboys (EastCoastDoughboys.com
) and learn about life in WWI.
Housed underground in an authentic 1936 subway station in Downtown Brooklyn, the Transit Museum’s working platform level spans a full city block, and is home to a rotating selection of twenty vintage subway and elevated cars dating back to 1907.
The event is Sunday, October 21, 2018, 11:00am-4:00pm.
Street parking is available. The Transit Museum is located in a decommissioned subway station at 99 Schermerhorn Street Brooklyn, NY 11201, and accessible by over 20 bus and subway lines. The entrance to the Museum is down two flights of stairs. A second, wheelchair-accessible entrance is located on the corner of Schermerhorn and Court Streets. Info: http://nytransitmuseum.org/
This event is sponsored by the WWI Centennial Committee for New York City, New York Transit Museum, and the East Coast Doughboys.
