Transit

Connective Tissue, Bob Fingerman, 2003

Sunday, we stayed in Brooklyn. Again, out of the door at the butt crack of noon for brunch. The day’s main event was the NYC Transit Museum, taking up Ashlan’s suggestion from yesterday. Initially, I was underwhelmed with its snaking opening gallery that was mainly old photos, but it opened up into the decommissioned, but still active Court Street Station. Mind that third rail. Apparently, some of these antique cars still go to work. I especially loved the exhibit, “Underground Heroes,” a subway centric collection of comics. One more level down, were two lines, with dozens of subway cars. All eras are represented, from 1904 to the present and most of the trains were made by the Saint Louis Car Company. Later, we walked through Brooklyn Heights and on down to Brooklyn Bridge Park, to catch the lights of the city across the East River. Tacos at Gran Electrica and then an Uber back to Dan’s.
