The City Hall Subway Station, New York


Under the busy streets of New York City rests a perfectly preserved monument to that city’s transportation history.  The City Hall Subway Station was first constructed over 100 years ago, a part of New York’s earliest underground transport network.  It was shut down in 1945, where it lay dormant and untouched until a one night public exhibition on the station’s centennial.  NYCSubway.org and photographer Fred Guenther have documented this event with a great collection of photos, showing this amazing abandoned place in all its pristine, untouched glory.
