From horse-drawn omnibuses to electric cars, transportation in New York City has undergone many changes since the 1800s. Visit the Museum's installation of marine paintings and discover how water was used to move around our city of islands, and then head back to the classroom to discover other modes of transportation through images from the Museum’s collection. Using what they've learned, participants will then create a timeline of the evolution of transportation in the city, including their own ideas for future innovations that could include natural gas or hybrid vehicles.
Reservations are recommended.
