PATH car 143,
saved from the ruins of the World Trade Center attack, is to become the centerpiece of a new 9/11 exhibit here at the Trolley Museum.
The hard-working volunteers of the museum still need to raise money to recoup the expense to ship the PATH car, then raise $200,000+ needed to create a first-class exhibit that will help people for generations to come learn about and reflect upon the events of 9-11-2001.

Directions to the Museum
Take the New York State Thruway to Exit 19, Kingston.
Follow the signs to the Historic Rondout Waterfront and
the Urban Cultural Park.
Make your way to the bottom of Broadway and turn left.
We're a quarter-mile down East Strand on the left.
Driving time is about 2 hours from Manhattan and 1 hour from Albany.
When punching our address into your GPS, you may need to enter it fully as 89 East Strand Street.
Local people know it as East Strand or even just the Strand and don't think of it as a street.
A common GPS error shows that East Strand and Route 9W intersect; they do not!
9W is on a bridge over East Strand.
Use Garraghan Drive to turn off 9W.
