LECTURE: FROM A NICKEL TO A TOKEN ANDREW J. SPARBERG

MONDAY May 1 at 7 P.M.

Love it or hate it, the subway is part of everyday life for most New Yorkers. What do you really know about the subways? Stations still have signs for the IRT, BMT and Independent Lines.

How did the system morph into today’s familiar network?

Come aboard and discover what happened between 1940 and 1968 that unified the subway and created the MTA.

Andrew Sparberg will share how this all came about on the system that moves billions of people every year.

Mr. Sparberg will have books for sale.
