IRT subway - historic and abandoned City Hall station 2006-05-14

 

On October 27, 1904, under City Hall, this ornate station was the centerpiece of the newly opened NYC subway. Despite its ornate features, various logistical factors forced its closure in 1945. However, this loop is still used by Lexington local trains to turn around after ending at Brooklyn Bridge station, and you might notice, is the reason why IRT subway cars can't be any longer than 51 feet.
