You - yes you! - could be 'Miss G Train'

The City Reliquary is looking for the
first "Miss G Train."

The pageant coincides fittingly with the museum's current exhibition of the old “Miss Subways” contests.

Why the G train? Well, the museum is located near the Metropolitan Avenue stop on the line. And, at only four cars and the only line to not go into Manhattan, the train is much charmed and maligned, and the City Reliquary embraces the unsung histories and quirky collections of New York.

Heeding the call to compete? The pageant will be open to New Yorkers of all ages and genders (calling all Mr. G Trains too, then).

To vie for your chance to rep the G, submit a photograph of yourself, along with a 200-word essay about the G train and why you wish to be its ambassador, to missgtrain@cityreliquary.org by Nov. 16.

Indeed open to all, on Nov. 19, all participants will have the chance to participate in the pageant, to be held at the City Reliquary (370 Metropolitan Ave.), from 8 to 10 p.m., complete with sashes and celebrity judges.

Brooklynites, start working on those essays now. We wouldn't want someone from Manhattan to win, would we?
