Now thru July 10. Transit Etiquette Exhibit at the New York Transit Museum
First, you might be asking where is this museum? Well it’s right it the heart of Grand Central Terminal and this newest exhibition Transit Etiquette or: How I Learned to Stop Spitting and Step Aside in 25 Languages, explores the creative and engaging visuals and broad scope of humor that transit agencies in the U.S. and abroad have used to cajole and scold passengers into better behavior. No matter if it is 1916, 1956, or 2016, whether in Toronto, New York, or Tokyo, the inappropriate behaviors ubiquitous to mass transit have remained remarkably consistent and have annoyed commuters throughout the world for more than a century. Pop in next time you’re waiting for a train, heading the subway or just passing through. Get the details.
