Good Morning Dad, It's the 104th Anniversary of the NYC Subway
My son Lee and my friend Herb were both born on March 28th, obviously in different years. They both share a passion for the New York City Subway system. When Lee woke up this morning he reminded me that the subway first opened on October 27, 1904. Since he was a little boy Lee always carried maps of the subway system whenever we went somewhere by train. If you need directions, just ask him. The photo above is of Lee and Karen last winter at the Tranist Museum in Brooklyn. They are sitting on a #7 train as it was in 1964 for the opening of the World's Fair and Shea Stadium.
