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: Thursday, May 3, 2018: Joseph B. Raskin, The Routes Not Taken

Our next meeting will be Thursday, May 3, 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.

Entertainment will be provided by Joseph B. Raskin, author of the book, "The Routes Not Taken: A Trip Through New York's Unbuilt Subway System" who, we expect, will explore the often-fascinating tales behind the unbuilt, and partially built, lines of the New York subway system. More details coming soon!

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