A Surprise Inside: Buildings with Secret Powers! at the New York Transit Museum
Discover the amazing functions of the 74th Street Powerhouse, a building dating back to 1902 that once housed giant, noisy machines working night and day to create the electricity that powered elevated trains throughout Manhattan. Curious kids will learn about what goes on in this and other "superhero" buildings in NYC, then craft dioramas of their own powerful buildings. Ages 6 and up.
