Elevator museum opens in Long Island City to lift Queens tourism

A Long Island City man hopes to lift Queens tourism with the nation’s first elevator museum.

Retired elevator executive Patrick Carrajat, 67, has packed 4,000 artifacts he salvaged and bought online into his fledgling 44th Ave. institution. Displays range from White House elevator inspection certificates to an animation cel of the Pink Panther by an elevator.

“I saw the history disappearing and said to myself, ‘Somebody has to preserve it,'” Carrajat said.

Carrajat transformed a former classroom for prospective cabbies into the museum at 21-03 44th Ave., where shelves are filled with buttons, cigarette lighters and golf balls with names of elevator manufacturers.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
