But the showcase doesn’t stop there. Eclectic sanitation trucks, essential to the city’s cleanliness and waste management efforts, join the lineup, highlighting the behind-the-scenes work that keeps the Big Apple running smoothly.

For those with a love for nostalgia, vintage buses add a touch of retro charm to the exhibition. These buses, with their distinct designs and historical significance, offer a glimpse into New York’s transportation heritage.

Visitors of all ages can immerse themselves in the history and significance of these iconic vehicles, appreciating their role in shaping the city’s identity and daily life.
