SATURDAY - Sketch the Transit Museum

Saturday January 12, 2019 - 
The New York Transit Museum 

Like Stepping into a NYC Time Machine

 If  you're a native New Yorker this could be like stepping into a time machine.  For everyone else it will be like being on a movie set.  This is a NYC Hidden Gem.  The entrance to the museum  (see photo) looks like any normal subway entrance.

The Museum Entrance Looks Just Like a Subway

 The Transit Museum is housed in a historic 1936 IND subway station in  Downtown Brooklyn.  You can find the entrance at the corner of Boerum Place and Schermerhorn  Street. The subway entrance stairs lead down to the mezzanine and platform.
