New York Transit Museum (MTA)
Located in Brooklyn, The New York Transit Museum, a division of the Metropolitan Transporation Authority, is one of the hidden gems of New York. The only institution dedicated to preserving the history of the New York City subway system, the Transit Museum is host to over 100,000 visitors a year. The Transit Museum is also responsible for the campaign to make the subway fashionable again, with a line of tee-shirts, maps and other memorabilia which it disperses through its two stores, one at Grand Central Terminal and another at Times Square, which receive over one million visitors a year. To coincide with the 100th anniversary of the subway system, The Transit Museum and MTA lend their name for the first time to their first official books, A CITY BENEATH US: THE 100 YEAR HISTORY OF THE NEW YORK SUBWAY SYSTEM (WW Norton, 2004) and SUBWAY STYLE (STC, 2004) and GRAND CENTRAL: 100 YEARS (STC, 2012).
