City Hall station


IRT City Hall station, Heins & LaFarge, 1904.

City Hall station has been closed to passengers since 1945 and is definitely the world's most beautiful abandoned subway station, if not its most beautiful subway station of any kind. I hadn't seen the station in about ten years, so it was great to get back there on the occasion of its centennial. More at Bluejake and Amy Langfield.

If you didn't make it to this rare public viewing, you can see the station any time by staying on a downtown 6 train after Brooklyn Bridge station. But it's not quite the same.

Thanks for bearing with me during this site's downtime. I think everything is back to normal now.
