city hall station

 Can you guess how much I loved waking up to discover this post about the abandoned City Hall subway stop in New York?  If you guessed "So much," you are so right.

The station was built in 1904, but closed in 1945, primarily due to low ridership.  It isn't open to the public, but if you ride the 6 train past the end of the line, you'll get a firsthand view of this beauty as it loops around.  I know what train I'll be hoping on the next time I'm in the city.
Looking at these is making me think fondly of Neverwhere.  Photos by John-Paul Palescandolo.
