UNDERGROUND NEW YORK CITY
11:45 AM: Tour Begins
UNDERGROUND NEW YORK CITY - THE EMPIRE BENEATH THE STREETS
It's right there under your feet, you probably ride it every day, but how much do you know about this city's amazing subway system. I will give you the secret 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. All the art, all the history, all the technical breakthroughs, all the "whys" and all the shenanigans that went into this spectacular achievement. A unique experience for seasoned locals or visitors to our fair city.
Get a look at the subway that few people, even lifelong New Yorkers, fail to recognize. This tour only explores the areas of the system that are open to the public but in most cases overlooked. We do not go into the tunnels or any area that is not open to the public. The Guide Association of New York City, The City of New York, The Metropolitan Transit Authority and their vast legal teams would frown upon the idea of people on a tour getting arrested, injured or killed.
