Long Island City, NYUSA 11109
February 5, 2012
The MTA offers tours of the former City Hall subway station on the 6 line. I've always looked, but it seems you have to be a museum member for these tours. Additionally, any NYC historical tour is great. The LES Tenement Museum and tours are great. Also, anything outside of Manhattan would be good to learn a little more about the boroughs.
I've done the LES tour. Governors Island in the summer is cool...and it changes every year. Coney Island has made some pretty big strides over the last couple years. I think it would be a good summer outing and really provides an opportunity to support one of the city's oldest attractions that is fortunate enough to experience a comeback, slow but sure.
Hey...this sounds like an interesting group. I'm a bit of a history geek and like finding/reading about the lost gems of nyc...and I guess the surrounding area. Always up to exploring in or outside the city.
