The Bronx Council on the Arts

The Bronx Trolley: First Wednesday Arts and Culture Tour

Traveling around in a trolley car seems like something San Francisco residents are known for doing well in this modern era. But who says San Fran residents should have all the fun? The Bronx Council on the Arts has brought a bit of time travel magic to our borough by creating a unique Bronx tour where guests can enjoy various dining and entertainment spots via a look­alike of a prime 1900s trolley car. Tours are offered the first Friday of every month. The trolley tour does not run the months of September and January.

Location: Hostos Community College’s Longwood Art Gallery is where the tour begins. A reception with wine, soft drinks, and hors d’oeurves is how it all begins before boarding the trolley for the tour. The reception is at 5:00pm. For more information, plea visit here.
