    Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street, 718-694-1600
    For enthusiasts of old-time New York City, or of the fascinating complexities of any urban infrastructure, the New York Transit Museum is an essential experience. Housed in a 60,000-square-foot former subway station, the institution explores the history of subterranean NYC. Highlights include Steel, Stone & Backbone, an exhibition detailing the building of the City's century-old subway system, and On the Streets, an interactive display of buses and trolleys that invites visitors to experience surface transportation from the early 1800s to the 21st century. —Harrison Peck
