How Well Do You Know New York City? A Ghost Subway Station
Opened in October of 1904 and closed in 1945, the City Hall subway stop has recently been opened again to the public. Visitors were able to check out the gorgeous tiles, stunning skylights, and original chandeliers of the preserved stop. The last tour date was February 16, and the next one is April 12. Sadly, tickets have sold out for the April showing, but get your fingers ready to click purchase for the upcoming summer tour. The dates will be announced soon. Meanwhile, check out the story by Curbed and ogle over the photographs posted there.
“Tours are led roughly 16 times a year to groups of about 40 people at a time. To attend, you have to have to be a member of the New York Transit Museum and be ready to act quickly. Tickets for the City Hall station tours cost $40 each and always sell out fast,” says Curbed.
