NEW YORK (AP) — The New York City subway system is celebrating its 110th birthday with a party.

It'll be held Saturday at the New York City Transit Museum. The museum is in a historic subway station in Brooklyn Heights.

The system opened in 1904 with the Interborough Rapid Transit line that ran from City Hall to 145th Street. There were 28 stations, compared to today's 468.

As part of the celebration, visitors will be able to ride vintage cars dating to the 1930s between the museum and the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station in Brooklyn.

Costumed interpreters will be on hand at the museum's decommissioned Court Street Station platform to talk about the history of the subway.

The party runs from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tickets can be obtained at www.mta.info/museum or at the door.
