Abandoned City Hall Subway Station

New York City, December 2013

My girlfriend’s father works for the MTA in New York and took us on a special train to stop at this beautiful piece of history. It was one of the first subway stations built in the city back in 1904, making it well over 100 years old. It shut down in 1945 because it was only handling about 600 passengers per day. Since then, it has sat practically untouched from the public. There’s still black paint over the skylights to prevent the possibility of a German air raid destroying the subways. It was eerie to be standing there, but so incredibly fascinating as well.
