Visit New York City Transit’s premier stop for sign production, the Bergen Street Sign Shop, and learn about its fascinating history. Opened over 60 years ago to service 122 trolley coaches (trackless trolleys) and renovated when trolley coach service ended in Brooklyn in 1960, the building was redesigned to service trucks and other work vehicles and to house the Sign Shop, Tin Shop, and Carpentry Shop.

Tickets are $50 for museum members only, and will be available at 10:00 am on Wednesday, April 17th.
