Haunting Ghost Subway Station

Designed as the show-piece of the New York subway system, the City Hall Station was adorned with stained glass windows, skylights and brass chandeliers. However, after only 41 years in operation, the station was abandoned in 1945. Its curved tracks were deemed unsafe for the new, longer trains, and, as it was less busy than nearby Brooklyn Bridge station, City Hall has lain abandoned ever since.

Until very recently, the station was inaccessible, except as a turning point for the 6 train which runs from Pelham Bay Park to Brooklyn Bridge. Passengers could not remain on the train as it looped uptown, but now can stay to view the interior of the abandoned station.

    If you think this subway station is something nice, then you MUST check out Moscow’s subway stations. I spent an entire day going from one piece of historic artwork to another.
