The Beautiful, and Rarely Seen, City Hall Subway Station, 1910s


The City Hall Subway Station is still considered one of the city’s most beautiful stations. Unfortunately, it was built in a time when subway trains only had five cars. Today they have ten. Most subway stations were expanded, but there was no way to retrofit City Hall so it had to be closed. -bds
