Welcome to the New York Chapter NRHS!

The New York Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society meets on the first Thursday of each month, except for July and August when we do not meet.

Next Meeting: June 1: Members Night: Bring Your Own Material!

Our next meeting will be Thursday, June 1, at the Edgar Cayce Institute, 7th Floor, 153 W. 27 Street, New York, N.Y.

The doors open at 6:00 p.m.; business/social meeting at 6:30, entertainment 7:00-9:00. There are several doors on 27 St. numbered 153; the one you want is an entrance lobby, with "153" prominently displayed over the entrance. Dial 33 on the keypad next to the door, tell them you're there for the NRHS meeting, and Cayce Institute staff will buzz you in. (Sometimes the buzzer doesn't work; in that case, do what New Yorkers do: wait for someone to come out, and go right in!) Coffee and tea are available at the meetings ($1 donation suggested); but otherwise, we regret that Cayce Institute does not permit other food to be consumed on the premises. Any problems, call 347-564-3173, a cell phone which will be in the room. Our meetings are open to all; there is no admission charge.

Entertainment at the June meeting will be provided by members and guests! Please plan to bring your own material to share with fellow attendees. If possible, let us know your plans to present and what equipment you will need; email us at or call 347-564-3173.
