New York is packed full of thrilling modern attractions and activities to fit the tourism style of any visitor to the greatest city on Earth, but during the holiday season, it’s an echo from the past which quickly becomes the place to be in the Big Apple.
For several years, between Thanksgiving and New Years Day, the Metropolitan Transit Authority reinstates an old friend to the F Line for your traveling pleasure. The Nostalgia Train is a vintage 1930s-style subway train, usually on display in the Transit Museum. The train makes her first stop at 2nd Avenue Station, not far from our hotel, and travels through the west side of town.
The train is totally committed to celebrating its antiquated nature with rattan chairs, roll-down window shades, and vintage advertisements adorning the walls. Many passengers even choose to dress in jazz-age clothing to complete the effect. The Nostalgia Train only costs a swipe of your Met Pass.
