FREE with RSVP:
A MetroCard is needed for this program
At the end of the nineteenth century, it was apparent that New York City needed a new way to get people and goods into and through town. Ferries would no longer suffice. The solution, briefly stated, was tunnels. On this walking tour, led by exhibition organizer Brian Sholis, learn the full story of the visionary engineering projects—including the original Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal—that rerouted traffic and reshaped the cityscape. In conjunction with The Permanent Way.
