Andrew Sparberg, retired LIRR manager and current transportation historian, will present an illustrated lecture about the history of the Long Island Rail Road, tracing its 186-year history. The LIRR was born as a stepping-stone for travel between New York and Boston, and over the years has re-invented itself to become the largest commuter railroad in North America.
Mr. Sparberg has spent forty-plus years in the transportation field, including twenty-five working at the LIRR. He has written one book, From a Nickel to a Token, about New York’s subways, edited a second one about the LIRR, Long Island Rail Road, by Stan Fischler, and was a major contributor (and associate editor) of the Encyclopedia of New York City. He has instructed classes at CUNY, St. John’s University, and Nassau Community College about transportation history.
Address: 199 Broadway Lawrence, NY 11559
