Video shows New York City’s 1940s subway
The New York Transit Museum archives have this vintage video produced by the NY Transportation Board in 1949 about the New York City subway system.
At the time, the fare was $0.10 – and the turnstiles had been modified to accommodate a dime. The first subway token wasn’t used until 1953.
