Rochester Subway slide and video presentation

January 13, 2019

A new slide and video presentation on the Rochester Subway, drawn from the extensive archive of the New York Museum of Transportation, will take place Sunday, January 13, with shows at 12:30 and 2:00. The presentation is free with the family friendly admission of $4 for adults and $3 for youths age 3 – 12.

The Rochester Subway once carried people and goods along the former route of the Erie Canal, from Brighton through downtown to points on the northwest side of the city. Completed in the late 1920s, it operated until 1956 when it was abandoned to make way for today's Interstate 490. Pictures in this show depict construction and operation of the Subway and will highlight features not covered in the museum's original slide talk. A brief video will also be shown with a film made on the Subway prior to its public operation.

The many trolley cars, steam locomotive, and fire truck at the New York Museum of Transportation will all be doing their part to illustrate transportation history in “hands-on” fashion, while numerous exhibits of photos, models and artwork are sure to delight visitors of all ages. An exhibit of the Midtown Plaza Monorail is the museum's newest vehicle for telling our area's transportation story. 

The museum is open Sundays only, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is located at 6393 East River Road, West Henrietta, NY. Take I-390 south to exit 11, NY Rt. 251 West, then 1 mile north on East River Road. www.nymtmuseum.org (585) 533-1113.
