If you clicked through our slideshow of the Transit Museum’s Nostalgia Ride to the Rockaways a couple of summers ago and thought to yourself, “Dang, I really missed the boat,” now’s your chance to hop aboard. The New York Transit Museum is firing up some of its 1920s subway cars for a ride to everyone’s favorite beach. If you’ve ever wanted to skip across Jamaica Bay on a piece of transportation history, listen up.
This Saturday at 10 a.m., some D-type triplex cars, which ran from the 1920s to 1960s, will be leaving for the Rockaways from the Transit Museum’s headquarters, in a former Boerum Hill subway station. Yep, these are the cars with the ceiling fans and rattan seats, meaning that if some jackass releases crickets on your train you’ll at least be able to ride it out in style.
