"The Streets of Rochester"
The New York Museum of Transportation continues its Sunday WinterFun 2019
series with a presentation by Jim Dierks featuring street scenes selected
from the museum's photo archives. Mr. Dierks' illustrated talk will take
place on Sunday, April 28 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. The presentation is free
with the family friendly admission of $4 adults and $3 for youths age 3 –
While Rochester evolved during the 20th Century, its transportation
alternatives changed too. Vintage photos in this slide presentation show
early trolley cars, autos, trucks and buses, along with the streets,
buildings and people of long ago.
The many trolley cars, steam locomotive, and fire truck at the New York
Museum of Transportation will all be doing their part to illustrate
transportation history in “hands-on” fashion, while numerous exhibits of
photos, models and artwork are sure to delight visitors of all ages. An
exhibit of the Midtown Plaza Monorail is the museum's newest vehicle for
telling our area's transportation story.
The museum is open Sundays only, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is located at 6393
East River Road, West Henrietta, NY. Take I-390 south to exit 11, NY Rt.
251 West, then 1 mile north on East River Road. www.nymtmuseum.org (585)
