Anyone interested in learning more about the Second Avenue Subway construction project, viewing exhibits about its long history or having their concerns about the project heard can now drop by MTA’s new Second Avenue Subway Community Information Center (CIC). The new center, located at 1628 Second Ave. between East 84th and East 85th streets, is a place where visitors can participate in regular programs and activities, view biannual exhibits about Second Avenue Subway project, and most importantly access information about the project and bring issues of concern to the attention of project staff. It will remain open until the first phase of the project, which will bring the Q line from East 63rd Street to East 96th Street, begins operating in December 2016.
What do you get when you take a decommissioned subway station, add in subway cars from as far back as 1904 and sprinkle in historic turnstiles, eye opening exhibits and a 1960’s era "Fishbowl" bus children of all ages can get behind the wheel of? You get a one of a kind New York Museum experience perfect for year round fun, but especially during the summer.
