City Hall Station Tour

Yesterday, Erik and I had the pleasure of taking a tour of the closed City Hall Subway station through the Transit Museum. I’ve heard about this station for years and the pictures always looked lovely. The unique thing about this station is the arched design and circular platform. This is also part of the reason the MTA closed this station in 1945; the round track left dangerous gaps near the doors. The details were lovely and I especially enjoyed hearing about how the subway was first conceived in NYC and what it took to build it.
