Museum From Home: Cathedral Subway Station?

Have you heard the urban legend that there used to be a subway station under the Cathedral? Senior guide Tom Fedorek looks into how these rumors originated and the very real connection between the Cathedral and the MTA New York City Transit, with special shout outs to Madeleine L'Engle, Grand Central Terminal, and the Bronx Zoo.

Marvelous presentation. Never knew that the death of Belmont’s wife was the true link between the IRT and the Cathedral.

The Young Unicorns is not the third book in the series that begins with A Wrinkle in Time. It's the third in the series that begins with Meet the Austins.

Thanks to all who set me straight on the correct place of The Young Unicorns within Madeleine L’Engle’s oeuvres. I regret the error. It’s nice to know that Madeleine still has so many fans. TF
