Board of Transportation

February 21st, 2013

This Board of Transportation seal adorns a wall that stands atop the portal through which the A train passes as it rises from the subterranean depths of Brooklyn up onto the remains of the Fulton Street Elevated in Queens. The portion of the line connecting the tunnel to the older elevated structure opened in 1956; this seal must have been created shortly before the Board of Transportation was succeeded by the New York City Transit Authority in 1953.
