Since 1999, when the Metrocard matured, Jack Eichenbaum has led a tour called The World of the Number 7 Train. This series of six walks and connecting rides along North Queens’ transportation corridor became his signature tour, focusing on what the #7 train did to and for surrounding neighborhoods since it began service in 1914. So much has changed since the tour began. In the NEW World of the Number 7 Train, walks take place in the Hudson Yards, the Long Island City shoreline, Flushing West, the Iron Triangle, North Corona, and Woodside-Jackson Heights. The routes are all different from the original tour. SO COME AGAIN!
