It may not have been the first time someone threw a party in an old subway station, but surely this was one of the few which were completely legal. Promoting their latest exhibit on Subway Record Covers, Brooklyn’s had it’s own karaoke and live music event in the New York Transit Museum‘s subway station this past Wednesday.
Karaoke was perform to live performances by band, The Golden Boyz.
The Court Street Station would have been the first stop in Brooklyn for the long planned 2nd Avenue Subway line. In the 30’s, this station operated shuttle service to Hoyt-Schermerhorn, where Michael Jackson’s “Bad” music video was filmed. A behind the scenes video of this video is currently playing at the museum.
Attendees pose for their own album cover on the platform level of the New York Transit Museum. Music fans had photo sessions to create the covert art for their own bands.
