Museum looks to crown a "Miss G Train" in honor of the Brooklyn subway line.

The City Reliquary, a not-for-profit, strange little museum located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is looking to crown one lucky New York lady with the title of "Miss G Train," in a pageant based on the "Miss Subways" contest held in New York between 1941 and 1976 (and randomly in 2004).

This means the pageant committee is looking for someone short, unreliable, and who spends most of her time below ground but occasionally comes out to admire the view. She also would have a bad habit of suspiciously disappearing for long periods of time late at night.

The Brooklyn Eagle notes the pageant is open to all New Yorkers, regardless of age or gender. To aim to claim your crown, just submit a 200-word essay about the G train accompanied by a photograph of yourself to missgtrain@cityreliquary.org by November 13th. Then, on the 19th, potential "Miss G Trains" of all sexes and sizes will gather at the Reliquary at 8 p.m. where one will claim his or her crown.
