Sunday, Dec. 3, hundreds of jazz musicians, swing dancers, vintage clothing enthusiasts, photographers (plus families, commuters, and subway/railroad buffs) will converge on the 96th St. Q train station for a full day of music, dance, and happiness — totally FREE with your Metrocard swipe. Top-quality established AND up-and-coming jazz bands will perform throughout the day. This volunteer-driven grassroots gathering is one of the absolute highlights of the winter season for a certain subculture of jazz and vintage lifestyle fans — and the general public is welcome! Please RSVP so we have an idea how many guests we should prepare for, thank you! PRESS WELCOME Journalists, bloggers, photogs, documentarians, etc. are absolutely welcome to come and cover the event! We just ask that everyone please share or post your reports/posts/broadcasts here or online with the hashtag #NYCVINTAGETRAIN2017 so we can enjoy them later.
