What is Community Crossing?

The New York Transit Museum's Community Crossing is a unique place to share original stories, written essays, oral histories, poetry, photographs and artwork about public transportation in the New York metropolitan region.

Community Crossing is provided by the New York Transit Museum and aims to extend the reach of the Museum's educational mission while inviting the sharing of original ideas and works on transit-related themes.
