New York Transit Museum Annex at Grand Central Station
New York, New York
Recommendation: 3 stars (out of 5)
I learned about this tiny outpost by accident, I read about it in some tourist publication. As it was just a few blocks from the hotel and it had a number of souvenirs I might be interested in (like paper plates printed with a map of the New York Subway system), I thought—what the heck, why not check it out.
And am I glad I did. It had a terrific half-exhibition on new transit projects in New York and their potential impact on the public transit experience. And the gift shop offered the most unique selection of items, including paper plates, cups, and napkins with maps of the New York Subway network.
Next trip, I need to visit the mother ship in Brooklyn.
