Venture uptown on our WWI-era IRT Lo-V subway cars for an afternoon ride to explore the Gilded Age Mausoleums and Monuments of The Woodlawn Cemetery. Our nostalgia ride will depart Old South Ferry Station at noon for a 60-90 minute ride, traveling uptown to Woodlawn Cemetery and arriving at approximately 1:30 pm. During a 2-hour visit, join a guided tour featuring Woodlawn’s art, architecture, stained glass, and gravesites of some of the most famous jazz musicians, suffragists, civic leaders, and business moguls that “reside” there. Guests are welcome to bring a picnic lunch and restrooms are available onsite. Our train will depart Woodlawn Station at 4 pm and return to Old South Ferry Station at approximately 5 pm.
