On March 21st, the Museum of the City of New York will host The Subway, a talk with Joseph Lhota, Chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), and transportation advocate and MTA Board Member Veronica Vanterpool to delve into what can be done to ensure the future success of the New York subway system.
New York City’s sprawling subway system has rolled into the 21st century in fits and starts. While long-awaited gleaming new stations recently opened along Second Avenue, the more than 100-year-old system is straining under the demands of booming ridership. The talk will be hosted by Sarah Maslin Nir, New York Times reporter and host of the Only in New York series at MCNY. Reception to follow with beer courtesy of Harlem Blue.
DATE: Wednesday, March 21st from 7-9 PM
