With exclusive access for New York Transit Museum members, explore the elegant chandeliers, leaded skylights, vaulted tile ceiling, and graceful curves of this decommissioned subway station. The tour begins above ground, where you will learn the fascinating history of the Beach Pneumatic Tube and the development of City Hall. Then, head downstairs and be transported back to 1904, when the Subway’s opening and the completion of this station marked a moment of great civic pride.

 Tickets are $50 for museum members only, and will be available at 10:00 am on Wednesday, August 14th.
