Historic Pipes on Display

Tom Wolfe  | Published on Wednesday, March 17, 2010
English and Dutch manufactured smoking pipes dating  back to the 1600s were among the artifacts uncovered during the archaeological  dig before the construction of the South Ferry Terminal began.

Nineteen of these pipes will be featured in an  upcoming exhibition at the New York Transit Museum’s Gallery Annex in Grand  Central Terminal in mid-town Manhattan.

The new exhibition entitled, “Where  New York Began: Archeology at the South Ferry Terminal” runs March 18, 2010 –  July 5, 2010. The “New York Transit Museum Gallery Annex and Store”  in Grand Central Terminal (mid-town Manhattan) is open 8 AM to 8 PM Monday –  Friday and Saturday & Sunday from 10 AM to 6 PM.  Admission is  free.  (The New York Transit Museum’s flagship is located in a  decommissioned subway station at the corner of Boerum Place and Schermerhorn  Street in Brooklyn Heights. The Museum has two locations, the flagship in  Brooklyn (60,000 sq. ft.) and the Annex (2,000 sq ft.)
