This Friday, the 7 Train, which travels from 34th Street in Manhattan to Flushing-Main Street, will officially mark its 100th anniversary of serving the Queens community.
On April 21, 1917 at 2 p.m., the 7 train took its very first trip from Grand Central station to Corona.
In commemoration of the anniversary, the transportation advocacy group Access Queens and New York Transit Museum will hold a celebration with several speakers, followed by a ride on the train from Grand Central to Corona, with the event set to begin at 1 p.m. and the ride to take place exactly at 2 p.m.
