The New York Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society meets monthly except for July and August. Our new regular meeting date is the first Monday of each month, September through June.

Next Meeting: Monday, November 4, 2019, 7-9 p.m., at 49 Fulton Street, Manhattan

Our meeting venue is St. Margaret's House, 49 Fulton Street, Meeting Room 3, on the ground floor to the left as you enter. The location on Fulton Street is just a short walk from the east end of the A/C Fulton St. subway station (use the downtown end of the train); the #2-3 Fulton St. stop is also very close, and the J-Z and #4-5 Fulton St. stops are in the same complex. Attendees will find the PATH World Trade Center stop within walking distance; also, the M15 Select Bus Service (1st and 2d Aves.) is adjacent, and the NYC Ferry Service, NY Waterways, and water taxi services Wall St. pier is within walking distance. Food is OK but alcohol is not allowed in the building.

Doors open at 7 p.m.; please do not expect to enter the room before 7 p.m.

Entertainment at the November meeting will be a slide program of Metropolitan Area topics presented by long-time member and noted photojournalist Joseph M. Calisi. Joe says his 20-year-old Kodachrome slides look like they were shot yesterday! He plans to cover the New York Cross Harbor Railroad carfloat operations, at both the Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, and Greenville, N.J. terminals. He'll also cover operations of the New York & Atlantic Railroad, the freight operator on Long Island. Also included will be the (unfortunately) now-historic Ringling Brothers Circus Train in Queens and on Long Island.

Our meetings are open to all; there is no admission charge.
