Even if you use New York's subway system every day, you've probably never walked throughA the City Hall station. The New York Transit MuseumA hosts tours of the abandonedA station at various times throughout the year. When the City HallA station first opened in 1904, the fare to ride the subway was a mere five cents. Elevated subway transportation had been implemented in the city decades earlier, but City Hall station, the southernmost stop in Manhattan, would be one of the first stations built on a new underground line. The subway would go from there, to Grand Central, Times Square, and then all the way north to 145th street in the Bronx.


The station's curved entryways and ceilingsA a€” there are no straight lines anywhere a€” are some of itsA most notable design features.
Other unique elements include electric chandeliers, oak furnishings, white terra cotta, and decorative plaques. Despite City Hall's beauty, the larger,A and more convenient Brooklyn Bridge station nearby grew more popular over time. To this day, after the 6 train makes its final downtown stop at the Brooklyn Bridge station, it travels through the old City Hall station in its route to turn back uptown.
The tour is only available toA museum members,A and it's sold out until 2016, with a long waiting list.


Traffic at the City Hall station declined, and even though it had weathered the Great Depression and World War II, the station closed on the last day of the year in 1945. It's dismally gray, confusing to navigate, and frequently smells like a mix of Auntie Anne's pretzels and body odor. As part ofA theA $3 billion project, the redesigned Penn Station will be called the "Empire Station Complex," due to be completed in 2019.
