Note: We're currently working to make the map viewable on more browsers and hope to have that done soon. The New York City subway system has 842 miles of track, making it the largest in North America.
It sits beneath tracks for the 4 and 5 trains run, which rumbled overhead as we stood on a fully tiled platform never opened to the public. Back above ground, Gates said the system is honeycombed with spots like this: stations, platforms and tunnels prepared for an expansive future that never came to be. For example, a Brooklyn-bound branch of the F train was supposed to keep going under Houston Street, beneath the East River and across Central Brooklyn before turning down to Flatlands near Jamaica Bay. As Gates described it, these unbuilt lines make up an impressive second system that sits invisibly on the actual subway map: lines that would've directly connected Forest Hills to JFK Airport, South Brooklyn to Staten Island and the Second Avenue Subway to Throgs Neck in the Bronx.
Some of those lost stops hide in plain sight — graffiti-covered indentations lit by a few bare bulbs and glimpsed from a moving train.
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's custom-built train car, which sits on a secret track beneath Grand Central Terminal. New York’s famous City Hall subway station, one of the most gorgeous gems in the world of mass transit, has been closed for decades. However, thanks to an immediate need to expand the original IRT line with newer, longer cars, the City Hall Station was closed just a few decades later on December 31, 1945. Although it would spend the next few decades closed to the public, the tracks were still used as the turnaround point for the 6 train after its final Brooklyn Bridge stop.
About a decade ago, New York City began the long and arduous process of restoring the City Hall Station as New York’s transit museum, but security concerns that started before September 11, 2001 fully killed the idea after the twin towers fell.
If you have a little extra time, you can stay on the train and view the City Hall Station as the train makes its turnaround.
If tourist get off at this stop would they have to wait for another train to make its way around or is there an alternative way out. I have a copy of Lost New York (Google Play, Amazon) which has a bunch of amazing photos of buildings and subway stations in New York. There are also a number of books that credit photos of abandoned stations on Amazon, however I’m not as familiar with their contents. Once went into the old subway beneath the Central Parkway in Cincinnati, 50 years ago;lots of cold war supplies as i recall.


The closed off platform at Aldwych station is now used as the shooting range for King’s College Rifle Shooting club!

Eaz is responsible for producing a first of its kind, ground breaking DVD series, “The Future of Graffiti” with every facet of production done by Eaz, from 3d animation and music, to the walls being conceptualized and painted. Recently, Eaz has entered the world of tattooing with a solid background and track record of over 20 years steeped in art and graffiti culture. Under the busy streets of New York City rests a perfectly preserved monument to that city’s transportation history.
Sorcery There are certain practitioners that deviate from the original teaching. And there's even more to it than riders see: dozens of tunnels and platforms that were either abandoned or were built but never used.
He also pointed out the gaps in service: southeast Brooklyn, central and eastern Queens, straight up the middle of the Bronx. Most of those lines died on the drafting table, but some were begun and then abandoned when the city ran out of money or pursued other priorities. To get there, we hopped down on some tracks that were closed for repairs and made our way to a tunnel begun for the abandoned line.
In the 1950s, the city increased the capacity of the system by lengthening the average train from eight to ten cars and expanding station platforms. An elegant station on a tight curve that served as the original southern terminus of the 4,5,6 line – closed in 1945 after trains were lengthened and  the nearby Brooklyn Bridge Station was expanded. The line, opened in 1904, was intended to be a showpiece and crown jewel of the new subway system.
The 6 train used to make all passengers leave the train at the Brooklyn Bridge stop, but no longer. In fact there is a bulletin specifically telling us to NOT kick anyone off at Brooklyn Bridge. To attend, you have to have to be a member of the New York Transit Museum and be ready to act quickly. His DVD series has been revered as the most influential DVD series on graffiti letter style and spray painting techniques ever created.


In the world of graffiti Eaz is known for his letter style, original characters and concepts. They form a kind of ghost system that reveals how the city's transit ambitions have been both realized and thwarted.Historian Joe Cunningham knows as much as anyone about the subway and how it's evolved since it opened in 1904. MTA worker Dan Brucker gives tours of Grand Central Terminal that feature a visit to a secret station far below ground. Unlike the rest of the line, City Hall featured tall tile arches, brass fixtures, and skylights that ran along the entire curve of the station — a sort of miniature Grand Central Station. Brooklyn Bridge downtown is treated as a regular stop, and conductors are not supposed to waste any extra time there. His solo large scale spray painted productions have been published in books and magazines throughout the world. Two summers ago, graffiti artists from around the world snuck in and covered its concrete walls with giant works of art. But to increase the speed of the trains, more space was needed between stations along the old routes. In fact, befitting the elegance of the station, it was even the chosen place for hanging the commemorative plaques recognizing the achievement of building the underground train system.
The system is vast, reaching like an octopus from Manhattan to almost every neighborhood outside Staten Island. A limousine with the president in it would be driven from inside the train, down a ramp and into an elevator next to the platform.
The best known one in Brooklyn is at Myrtle Avenue on the Q line, which has been turned into a work of art called masstransitscope. In Manhattan, there are abandoned stations at Worth Street, East 18th Street and beneath City Hall. FDR's train car still sits on a stub of track beneath Grand Central, a peculiar piece of the city's lost transit system — like stations once opened and now closed.
