Event description

Description

It's right there under your feet, you probably ride it every day, but how much do you know about this city's subway system?

Join New York Adventure Club as we explore the oldest subway stations in New York City with transit expert and guide Gary Dennis.

Working our way up from Brooklyn Bridge — City Hall station to Grand Central Terminal, our subterranean experience will include:


  • The history and inside story of the creation of the original 1904 subway line, and how it grew into the most extensive transportation system in the world
  • A closer look at the art, architecture, and secrets hiding in plain sight of stations including Brooklyn Bridge - City Hall, Astor Place, and Times Square
  • A glimpse of Old City Hall Station from the 6 train, the crown jewel of the subway system, which closed in 1945


Check out pictures from one of our last Underground Manhattan tours!


See you there!


*Since our tour starts outside, a MetroCard swipe will be needed to enter the subway system

**Please bring water and comfortable shoes as we’ll be on our feet for most of the tour

***This tour does not access the Old City Hall Station platform




About Gary Dennis

"I am a native New Yorker, NY subway aficionado, and product of an insanely competitive family of "know it alls". My parents, younger brothers, and I all love New York City history, and to get some parental attention I had to be historically correct and entertaining at the same time.

"I love this city and all its peculiarities, and I love sharing it with newcomers, returning visitors or native New Yorkers— I'll tell you these and other fascinating things you never knew about this amazing place I call home because 'there are 8 million stories in the naked city' and I will share with you as many as possible."
