Trolley Museum of New York

Trolleys from Germany, Belgium, Sweden, and Norway can be seen from the observation window upstairs, and then you are able to walk up close to them downstairs. Notable items in the collection include a Holmenkolbanen No. 3. Tram built in 1897 and used by King Olav V of Norway; a Boston subway car, "The T;" and the PATH PA-1 commuter No. 143 -- the last surviving car from the train that was parked deep beneath the World Trade Center Twin Towers when they collapsed on 9/11.
