Što ćete raditi

We will be learning about how railroads and the NYC subway helped to connect and develop Brooklyn, New York's most populous borough.

Highlights:

• See how the subway and railroads continues to influence the planning and development of the NYC region of 20+ million people.

• Discover today’s challenges, from governance to climate change, and learn about tomorrow’s possibilities for the region's built environment.

• Explore how the subway operates and learn about some of the technology keeping it moving 24/7.

• Learn about the history of the busiest subway and commuter railroad in the USA.

• Experience the design of new, old, and abandoned stations, and uncover secrets hidden in plain sight!

Please note:

• Since our tour starts outside, a MetroCard swipe or OMNY tap will be required to enter the system.

• Please consider bringing comfortable shoes and water. Experience involves traversing an underground environment, and walking up and down many steps (not ADA accessible).

• This tour visits areas open to the public and does not access any restricted areas.

• Exact route and tour length may vary slightly based on the MTA’s weekend schedule, but the starting and ending locations will always remain the same. However, please feel free to leave at any time/location if you've got a busy day planned!

Hi! I am a big believer in big cities and fascinated by the urban transportation infrastructure that supports such levels of density and dynamism.

I am from NYC and I have previously worked for NYC Transit.

I studied urban planning at school, and I am a licensed NYC tour guide, as well as an AICP certified urban planner.

I currently work on NYC infrastructure projects, advocate for public transit, and serve on the Board of Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT).

Gdje ćete biti

This is my Brooklyn tour. Highlights on this tour include many abandoned stations, commuter railroad tunnels, and a lot more, including impressive skyline views!

The tour will end at Atlantic Terminal (not the start location). However, please feel free to leave the tour at any time or location if you've got a busy day planned and limited time to explore!

Rayn is very knowledgable and friendly; he gave an excellent tour of the Brooklyn subway system. It is affordable and I am going to book more.

Amazing amazing amazing! One of the best tours I have ever been on. So many interesting facts about the subway from a real expert who worked for the MTA. The tour was well structured and well planned plus Rayn was happy to answer all of my complex questions. I felt very safe and comfortable on the tour because Rayn made sure everything was organized and easy. Wow, I will definitely go on another tour with him because I learned that he offers a few different ones. The length was not too long or too short. Overall A++++++. Book it!

This boy right here knows his choo-choos. What a magical jaunt through the expansive, meandering tunnel systems that rest beneath all of us New Yorkers. Rayn is clear and expressive with his historical information, he is accomadating to questions and is welcoming to new ideas. I hope Rayn continues to expand and conquer the NYC mass transit tour market, in order to become the Tour Emperor.

Rayn was a great tour guide! The route was thoughtfully planned and very informative. I live in New York, but am still getting to know the city. This was a great way to see parts of the city I haven't before, while learning how the subway has been such an integral part of building the urban fabric of NYC. I've done other "urban exploration" tours and was excited that we got to see some abandoned parts of the subway. I had no idea there was a whole system of abandoned transit lines! I will definitely be going on other tours that Rayn offers.

As a newbie in the area, I wasn’t sure what to expect from a train & subway tour, but I was so glad I found Rayn’s this one! I was able to explore subway stations I never would have taken, or seen things I’d already passed but missed. Instead of rushing from point A to B, we looked through archways, hidden doorways and explored little known spots with interesting historical significance. Plus I met a few new locals that gave me great tips. Aside from the weird cold rain snap we experienced that day (only during the short time we spent above ground), everything was great! I’d definitely recommend it!

The whole tour has been a great learning experience. Our host, Rayn, is very knowledgeable about the history of New York and its public transportation. If you've got a question on NYCT Subways history, Rayn has the right answer for you. Highly recommended!
