Tour: New York’s Public Transportation
The physical City of New York is the product of numerous planners, developers, and municipal officials as well as private citizens. This tour explores how the city was planned and grew, and is served by the infrastructure that we use every day.
Explore the alternative forms of public transportation that are available in the region. This tour will start at Grand Central Terminal and end in Hoboken Terminal. Particular focus will be placed on the early rail systems of New York and New Jersey, as well as the Trans-Hudson Rail Tubes. Leader: Jonathan Peters, Ph.D., College of Staten Island.
