On Aug. 9, the New York Transit Museum unveiled "Subway People: Alone in the Crowd," an exhibition of 40 photographs by David Perlmutter of New Yorkers in transit.

Among the images on display is "The Drummer" (pictured), about which the artist says, "The songs of the subway take many forms, from the rumble of the subway to the rhythmic drumming of a subway performer."

This exhibit will be on display through Dec. 4 in the museum’s gallery, located at the corner of Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn Heights. Admittance is free with museum admission of $5 adults, $3 seniors and children, ages 3-17, and free for children ages 3 and younger. For more information, including museum hours, call (718) 694-1600 or visit
