New York is the only U.S. city to have a dedicated museum dedicated to the transportation industry.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s museum and exhibition facility, the first in the country dedicated solely to the vehicles of the American automotive industry, opened in October.
Its centerpiece, a two-story, 10,000-square-foot building at 2 World Trade Center, opened last month.
It was designed by a team of local architects including Miele, whose firm also designed the MOMA in the late 1980s.
This story was updated on Feb. 18 to include information about the building and the number of exhibits it holds.
