Show off your pinstripe pride next week by riding to Yankee stadium on one of NYC’s vintage subway trains.
The New York Transit Museum is bringing back their Nostalgia Rides for Opening Day and you definitely don’t want to miss out! Passengers will be able to climb aboard a 1917 IRT Lo-V train car for a trip to Yankee Stadium.
Be ready to ride the morning of March 30th as the vintage train will depart Grand Central Station at 11am sharp. Plus, a 6-car configuration of the Train of Many Colors will depart Grand Central Station shortly after to accommodate even more baseball fans wanting to get in on the nostalgia.
Originally operated by the Interborough Rapid Transit (IRT) system, the IRT Lo-V trains were what took people to the games when the Yankee Stadium first opened back in the 1920s.
Experience the ride the way New Yorkers would’ve nearly a century ago—or even 60 years ago—complete with ceiling fans, rattan seats, and drop car sash windows. The Lo-V trains weren’t retired until the 1960s, and can now be seen at the New York Transit Museum or on special occasions such has this one.
The vintage Nostalgia Train is scheduled to take fans from the uptown 4 train platform of 42 Street., running non-stop on the Lexington Avenue Line to 161st Street in the Bronx.
The ride to the stadium will take about 25 minutes, and with the 1st pitch taking place at 1:05 p.m. you’ll have plenty of time to settle in and fill up on the stadium’s 2023 concessions lineup including Fuku, Bobby’s Burgers by Bobby Flay, Mac Truck, City Winery and more!
You can ride for the price of a MetroCard swipe or OMNY tap. Learn more on the New York Transit Museum’s website.
