NYC screening of The End of the Line



Join filmmakers Fredrick Armstrong and James P. Harte at the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn on Saturday, May 6 at 1:30 p.m. There they will be presenting their Telly award winning documentary, The End of The Line - Rochester's Subway, as well as two featurettes from the DVD release.

THE END OF THE LINE focuses on the story of the smallest city in America to build, and abandon, a subway. Service on the Rochester, New York subway began on December 1, 1927 and ended in June 1956.

PRODIGAL SON presents the stories of that subway's only surviving passenger car, and one of the last men to operate it.

MOTHERLESS CHILD is a final salute to the subway's abandoned tunnel and includes a "PHANTOM RUN" through this mile-long underground stretch.

A question-and-answer session with the filmmakers will follow the screening.

Directions to the Museum:
The New York Transit Museum is located at the corner of Boerum and Schermerhorn Street, Brooklyn Heights. On weekends, local subways are the 2, 3, 4 to Borough Hall; R to Court Street; A, C, G to Hoyt-Schermerhorn; A, C, F to Jay Street/Borough Hall. By bus, B25, B26, B37, B38, B41, B45, B52, B57, B61, B65, B67, B75 - all stop within 1 to 2 blocks from the Museum. By car, the Transit Museum is just five blocks from the Brooklyn Bridge. Take the Brooklyn Bridge and proceed straight on Adams Street; Adams Street will become Boerum Place. You will then go two blocks to Schermerhorn Street.

Just a note - as there is work planned on the 4 line through the Fall, the line terminates at weekends at Brooklyn Bridge. So if you will be coming from Manhattan, we suggest you plan to take Westside trains - or if you are closest to the east side you can take the 4 to Brooklyn Bridge and then just hop on the J train to Court Street, which leaves you very close to us. Other plans for rerouted service are often available on a recorded message at 718-330-1234.
