Housed at the New York City Transit Museum the  ElectriCity: Powering New York’s Rails exhibition was designed and constructed to help educate the public, both NYC natives as well as the many visitors to this metropolis, about how the subway and mass transit is powered. The exhibition explores the how the electricity that feeds the subway is created, transmitted many miles, transformed into a type of energy that can be used, and finally how it powers various elements of the trains. Interactive elements are woven into the exhibition along with historic artifacts of the subways from over 100 years ago to the present.
