We have already Untapped the mystery of some public bathrooms in New York City, but we’re still curious about the ones you can find in many subway stations.
After reaching out to him when discovering his video, he responded “I started searching the internet to see if the NYC Subway System had and still has restrooms that are open for the public.
He also said he was surprised to hear the news of a man dying while relieving himself between moving cars and one who died while doing the same on the third rail. Finally, many bathrooms in the NYC subway have been completely remodeled and changed into newsstands, and other retail spots.
More scatological fun: check out the coolest and quirkiest public bathrooms in New York City. No mention of homeless people camping out in stalls as the reason for shutting down most of these bathrooms? 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.
The elaborately tiled City Hall subway station in New York City a€” still extant but now closed to the public, alas a€” used the Guastavino touch to convince wary city dwellers to head underground for a train trip. These ceilings grace landmarks that include state capitols, Grand Central Terminal and Carnegie Hall a€” as well as some more ordinary buildings.
A closeup of the bar in New York City's Vanderbilt Hotel shows the intricate detail of the Guastavino Co.'s elegant ceiling work. Built in 1916, the firehouse has bright red doors, gleaming trucks and a narrow, gently arched ceiling over the entryway. A Guastavino ceiling in the Smithsonian Institution's Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. The Guastavinos designed stunning private spaces, too, for Rockefellers, Astors and Vanderbilts.
Fearing a major snowstorm, New York officials shut down the subway, a major inconvenience that could have longterm consequences. But that doesn’t mean after the fact assessments are invalid, especially when millions of people are affected. With meteorologists predicting blizzard conditions and perhaps as much as 18 inches of snow for New York City, city and state officials moved quickly to shut down as much of the transportation system as possible.
Commuter railroads were shut down as well, making for an eerily empty Grand Central Terminal. But there’s a good chance New York lost more than the stakes it thought it was putting down, and that it has created a longterm problem for itself. Which is the last thing you want people thinking when you really need to clear the streets. The tunnel under New York City's East River that carries the R subway train will be closed for more than a year to repair damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced today. Those traveling to Manhattan can transfer to one of 11 lines that are accessible from four R stations in Brooklyn. R train service between Brooklyn and Manhattan was restored a few weeks after Sandy hit, thanks to short-term repairs. But the Montague tube had been filled with 27 million gallons of salt water for ten days before it was pumped out, causing serious damage to electrical components, cables, and walkways. Making repairs in a subway system that operates 24 hours a day is difficult, and if the MTA worked on the tunnel only on nights and weekends, the project would run into 2016, it said.
The MTA also announced it will close the Greenpoint Tube, which carries the G train between Brooklyn and Queens, for 12 weekends starting July 6. The R train runs from Forest Hills in Queens, along Broadway in Manhattan, and under the East River into Brooklyn.
An MTA spokesperson clarified that the governor's budget allocated the Authority at least $25 million more than it anticipated, and that the number could rise by $15 million if "certain tax revenues perform very well." The MTA will present on its financial situation to its board in July. Weather forecasters warned on Sunday that the approaching megastorm which could wreak havoc across 800 miles of the East Coast had the potential be the largest storm ever to hit the United States. As President Barack Obama warned on Sunday that Hurricane Sandy was a 'serious and big storm' weather forecasters said that tens of million of people across 800 miles of the East Coast need to prepare for the event which could be the largest ever storm to hit the United States. Sandy, expected to come ashore late on Monday, could deliver a harsh blow to major cities in its target zone including New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Baltimore and Boston.
The sheer size of the storm meant its effects would be felt from the mid-Atlantic states to New England.
Preparations: Metropolitan Transportation Authority workers cover an entrance to the Canal St. And with several state of emergencies already in existence across the country, New York City's MTA announced that subway and bus operations would begin to close down at 7 p.m. The closure of New York City's mass transport network for the second time in two years and only the second time in history will mean that almost 12 million people in the wealthiest city in the U.S. New York City's Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced service on subways will be curtailed beginning at 7 p.m.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he ordered an evacuation of the low-lying areas along the edges of the city including parts of lower Manhattan, sections of Brooklyn and Staten Island, and the Rockaways in Queens. He said 72 evacuation centres had been created around the city and he also ordered the closure of schools. Lower Manhattan, the Rockaways and a low-lying area of Queens are the first areas to be evacuated. If forecasts hold, and especially if the storm surge coincides with high tide, the effects should be much more severe for the city said Klaus Jacob, a Columbia University researcher who has advised the city on coastal risks. While the storm may not be the worst-case scenario, Jacob said he expected the subway system, as well as underground electrical systems and neighborhoods in Lower Manhattan, to be at least partially flooded. The City that Never Sleeps will suspend its train, subway and bus service Sunday night ahead of Hurricane Sandy, which is expected to bring strong winds and dangerous flooding to the East Coast, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said at a news conference.
The service is expected to resume operations about 12 hours after the storm ends, officials said at the news conference - which would put services on track to resume for Tuesday afternoon.
New York City's Metropolitan Transportation Authority said service on subways will be curtailed beginning at 7 p.m.
In addition New Jersey Transit announced they  will implement a gradual system-wide shutdown of all bus, rail, light rail and Access Link service, ahead of the massive storm bearing down on the state. The service suspension process requires the relocation and securing of buses, rail equipment and other NJ Transit assets away from flood-prone areas.
Administration officials also say the Atlantic City Rail Line will suspend operations at 4 p.m.
New York City’s Office of Emergency Management offers advice for what to do in case disaster strikes.
They encourage residents to construct an emergency supply kit, complete with a gallon of water per person per day for drinking, as well as non-perishable foods, first aid kids, and flashlights. The office urges people to designate two meeting places – one near the home, and the other place in the neighbourhood, like a library or place of worship.
It is also extremely helpful to keep a list of emergency contacts, both in the area, and out-of-town in case those in the city cannot be reached.

Those living around bodies of water have the greatest risk of flooding from Sandy’s storm surge and are now subject to mandatory evacuations ordered by Mayor Bloomberg. The storm could bring the country's financial nerve center to a standstill, although the major Wall Street exchanges said they planned to open as usual on Monday because they have alternative facilities they can use. Worried residents in the hurricane's path packed stores, searching for generators, flashlights, batteries, food and other supplies in anticipation of power outages. As Hurricane Sandy trekked north from the Caribbean — where it left nearly five dozen dead — to meet two other powerful winter storms, experts said it didn't matter how strong the storm was when it hit land: The rare hybrid storm that follows will cause havoc over 800 miles from the East Coast to the Great Lakes. Governors from North Carolina, where steady rains were whipped by gusting winds Saturday night, to Connecticut declared states of emergency.
Hurricane Sandy is moving slowly toward the north-northeast but is expected to turn to the north and west later Sunday and Monday, forecasters say. Although Sandy is currently a hurricane, it's important not to focus too much on its official category or its precise path (current models show it making landfall over New Jersey or Delaware sometime early Tuesday).
Sandy is expected to merge with a wintry system from the west, at which point it will become the powerful superstorm that has forecasters and officials across the eastern U.S. Frigid air coming south from Canada also is expected to collide with Sandy and the wintry storm from the west, creating a megastorm that is expected to park over the northeast for days. Further complicating matters is the possibility for dangerous storm surges: A full moon means the tides will be higher than usual, which will make it easier for the storm's powerful winds to push water into low-lying areas.
Storm surge could reach anywhere from 2 to 11 feet along the northeastern coast, forecasters say.
Leonard and two crewmates in his 32-foot sailboat, Satori, rode out 1991's infamous 'perfect storm,' made famous by the Sebastian Junger best-selling book of the same name, before being plucked from the Atlantic off Martha's Vineyard, Mass., by a Coast Guard helicopter. The storm could cause the worst flooding Connecticut has seen in more than 70 years, said the state's governor, Dannel P. This morning, Sandy was located about 260 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, with top sustained winds of 75 miles per hour early Sunday, the NHC said.
Tropical storm conditions were spreading across the coast of North Carolina on Sunday morning and gale force winds are forecast to begin affecting the New York area and southern New England by Monday morning, the NHC added. Sandy could be the largest storm to hit the United States, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's website. Waves pound Carolina Beach pier in Carolina Beach, North Carolina as Hurricane Sandy makes its way up the Atlantic coast of the U.S.
Forecasters said Sandy was a rare, hybrid 'super storm' created by an Arctic jet stream wrapping itself around a tropical storm, possibly causing up to 12 inches of rain in some areas, as well as heavy snowfall inland.
Sandy killed at least 66 people as it made its way through the Caribbean islands, including 51 in Haiti, mostly from flash flooding and mudslides, according to authorities. The White House said President Obama canceled a campaign appearance in Virginia on Monday and another stop in Colorado on Tuesday, and will instead monitor the storm from Washington. Republican challenger Mitt Romney rescheduled campaign events planned for Virginia on Sunday and was flying to Ohio instead.
Cody Billotte walks through the high water as he loads his car to go to work as Hurricane Sandy bears down on the East Coast, Sunday, Oct. The storm was expected to continue moving parallel to the Southeast coast most of the day and approach the coast of the mid-Atlantic states by Monday night, before reaching southern New England later in the week. It was so big, however, and the convergence of the three storms so rare, that 'we just can't pinpoint who is going to get the worst of it,' said Rick Knabb, director of the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Officials are particularly worried about the possibility of subway flooding in New York City, said Uccellini, of NOAA. The city closed the subways before Hurricane Irene last year, and a Columbia University study predicted that an Irene surge just 1 foot higher would have paralyzed lower Manhattan.
Up and down the Eastern Seaboard and far inland, officials urged residents and businesses to prepare in ways big and small.
Airlines started moving planes out of airports to avoid damage and adding Sunday flights out of New York and Washington in preparation for flight cancellations on Monday. The Virginia National Guard was authorized to call up to 500 troops to active duty for debris removal and road-clearing, while homeowners stacked sandbags at their front doors in coastal towns.
Utility officials warned rains could saturate the ground, causing trees to topple into power lines, and told residents to prepare for several days at home without power.
President Barack Obama was monitoring the storm and working with state and locals governments to make sure they get the resources needed to prepare, administration officials said.
In North Carolina's Outer Banks, a group of about 20 people was forced to wait out the storm on Portsmouth Island, a former fishing village that is now uninhabited and accessible only by private ferry. Rowley said he could see 15-foot seas breaking over the island's dunes, enough to bring water to the island's interior. City officials said they would begin evacuating the gambling hub's 30,000 residents at noon Sunday, busing them to mainland shelters and schools. First lady Michelle Obama canceled an appearance in New Hampshire for Tuesday, and Obama moved a planned Monday departure for Florida to Sunday night to beat the storm. A state of emergency was declared yesterday  in both New York and New Jersey as officials warned the already-killer Hurricane Sandy that is barreling toward the East coast will be the worst case scenario affecting a third of the U.S. Some residents of the state were warned to get ready for power outages that could last from seven to 10 days, and portable generators are selling out all up and down the Atlantic Seaboard. The tempest, which has been dubbed 'Frankenstorm' because of its proximity to Halloween is expected to dump over a foot of rain onto the Atlantic coast, arriving during a full moon when tides are near their highest increasing the likelihood of coastal flooding potential along the Eastern Seaboard. Obama is still scheduled to make campaign visits to Orlando, Fla., and Youngstown, Ohio Monday before returning to the White House. Wind gusts of up to 75 mph are expected when the storm hits on Tuesday with waves of up to 20 -feet and widespread power outages and on higher ground up to two feet of snow is expected to fall in Virginia and Ohio.
An 800-mile wide swath of the country from the East Coast to the Great Lakes could see 50 mph winds regardless of Sandy's strength. Atlantic City's 12 casinos will close at 4pm Sunday for only the fourth time in the 34-year history of legalized gambling there, and officials advised residents of flood-prone areas to stay with family or be ready to leave.
Atlantic City officials said they would begin evacuating the gambling hub's 30,000 residents at noon Sunday, busing them to mainland shelters and schools.
Tom Foley, Atlantic City's emergency management director, recalled the March 1962 storm when the ocean and the bay met in the center of the city.
With catastrophic inland flooding in New Jersey, Massachusetts and Vermont, federal officials say Irene caused $15.8 billion in damage.
Sandy is 'looking like a very serious storm that could be historic,' said Jeff Masters, meteorology director of the forecasting service Weather Underground. Some have compared the tempest to the so-called Perfect Storm that struck off the coast of New England in 1991, but that one hit a less populated area. Masters said this could be as big, perhaps bigger, than the worst East Coast storm on record, a 1938 New England hurricane that is sometimes known as the Long Island Express, which killed nearly 800 people. JetBlue, US Airways and Spirit Airlines are offering waivers to customers who wish to reschedule their flights without paying the typical fee of up to $150. Local forecaster's in Philadelphia have warned that the storm could directly hit the City of Brotherly Love and residents in South Jersey have begun stocking up on bottled water and batteries to prepare. The storm could also knock out East Coast refineries responsible for producing more than 6 per cent of the nation's fuel, potentially causing an increase in gas prices across the country.
As Hurricane Sandy approaches New York City, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has ordered mandatory evacuations of the city's low-lying Zone A by 7 p.m.
Hospitals and nursing care facilities in Zone A are not evacuating, as they have emergency generators.
Governor Andrew Cuomo also announced this morning that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's subway and rail service will shut down at 7 p.m. According to MTA Chairman and CEO Joe Lhota, mass transit will remain suspended until 12 hours after the end of the storm, which is likely to be sometime Wednesday. Firstly those that remain in use, albeit in a disheveled state, were documented by our friend Eron Watt whose quest to document NYC’s subway bathrooms stretched five years, from 2009 to 2014. Some transit workers are currently using using former stalls as locker rooms, equipment stock, or other general storage.

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. The underside of the arch is lined with white tiles arranged in a ziggy-zaggy herringbone pattern.
But Ochsendorf says the vaulting is in good condition a€” and color photographs make you itch to go underground to see for yourself. You have limited information to work with, tremendous time constraints, and way too many variables.
And in the case of the decision to shut down New York’s public transportation system in the face of a snowstorm Monday night, it looks like the wrong call was made.
Effectively forcing millions of people to stay at home has obvious consequences: Shops and restaurants don’t get business, public transit and taxis lose out on fares. You accept these downsides rather than risk stranding people and clogging the roads at an especially inopportune time. 2005’s Hurricane Katrina is a good example: Mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders were issued, but disregarded by many.
In a letter addressed to MTA Acting Chairman Fernando Ferrer, eight candidates for NYC mayor called on the Authority to use the money to "maintain and increase service," but made no mention of repairs in the wake of Sandy.
With state of emergencies already in existence in New York, New Jersey and Delaware, government officials faced tough decisions on emergency plans, including mandatory evacuations in vulnerable coastal areas, as residents scrambled to buy supplies before the storm arrives on Monday night. Its center was forecast to strike New York-New Jersey area and then move inland toward Philadelphia and the rest of Pennsylvania.
It also requires complete coordination with state and local officials throughout the process. Sunday due to the rapidly deteriorating weather conditions and the continued evacuation of Atlantic City.
Chris Christie, who was criticized for not interrupting a vacation in Florida while a snowstorm pummeled the state in 2010, broke off campaigning for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in North Carolina on Friday to return home. That, coupled with the threat of several inches of rain, has officials working to shore up flood defenses. In New York, city officials discussed whether to shut the subway system on Sunday in advance of the storm, which could bring the country's financial nerve center to a standstill. Romney scrapped plans to campaign Sunday in Virginia and switched his schedule for the day to Ohio. Airlines said to expect cancellations and waived change fees for passengers who want to reschedule. The offers cover passengers flying just about anywhere from Latin America to New Hampshire. The airlines have only canceled a handful of flights so far, nearly all of them in and out of Florida and the Caribbean. With the help of YouTube user Eron Watt, we’ve verified that only 48 of these lavatories were unlocked. Amd we, who suffer from urinary incontinence), are forced to urinate under a stairwell – illegal, disgusting, but hey, the bathroom 20 feet away is locked up. 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.
He's inviting everyone to join the hunt a€” to look for artistically placed thin, colored tile, arranged in vaults, and to let him know what they find. NPR reserves the right to use the comments we receive, in whole or in part, and to use the commenter's name and location, in any medium. More than an inconvenience, that could be a bigger problem than you realize, one that could haunt the area years down the road. The Metro-North and Long Island commuter railroads were shut down, and all bus and subway service was suspended at 11 pm Monday night. People can’t get to the pharmacy to pick up medicine, check on relatives, or get to the doctor’s office.
Memories of Boston in the 1978 blizzard and and Atlanta in an ice storm last year show what can happen if you don’t. Unlike a tropical system like a hurricane, which gets its power from warm ocean waters, extratropical systems are driven by temperature contrasts in the atmosphere.
For example, tropical storm-force winds can be felt more than 500 miles from the storm's center, according to the National Hurricane Center. Officials are bracing for the worst: nearly a foot of rain, high winds and up to 2 feet of snow. Utilities have been bringing in extra crews and lining up tree trimmers so they're prepared, and with good reason. The rest of these appear to be locked, repurposed for storage, or converted into convenient newsstands like the one shown below.
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. New York has its own memories of catastrophic weather, like Superstorm Sandy in 2012 and a 2010 blizzard. Or, perhaps even worse, government officials could disregard the warnings of meteorologists and decide not to order a shutdown even when one might be warranted, not wanting to get it wrong again.
It's already caused some minor flooding in North Carolina's Outer Banks and has prompted evacuations elsewhere.
Here’s the dirty low-down on what awaits you behind the few unlocked doors of subway bathrooms. But that little entryway ceiling has some distinctive touches a€” the tiles, the pattern a€” that are being noticed with no little respect at the nearby National Building Museum. They were like master masons transported here from the Gothic era, men who knew how to build the correct shapes to make their spaces stand up and stay incredibly durable, strong and long-lasting. Imagine trying to rescue stranded passengers from a stranded elevated train line in a blizzard.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has personnel and supplies spread as far west as the Ohio River Valley, said Craig Fugate, the agency's director. For one, hurricane-force winds of at 74 mph could send tree branches into power lines, or even topple entire trees and power poles. The next time a blizzard’s expected, people may say, “Remember that time they closed the subway because they were so afraid? Those left standing could succumb to snow, which could weigh down still-leafy branches enough to also topple trees. Photographs, diagrams, drawings and scale models show the beauty and breadth of the work of the Guastavino family a€” some one-thousand vaults and domes and ceilings in 40 states. It's a cross-section reproduction of the fireproof vaulted ceiling they did in 1889 at the Boston Public Library. MIT professor John Ochsendorf, who curated the Building Museum exhibit, says the City Hall Station featured chandeliers and skylights, and green, tan and cream-colored tile work in intricate patterns a€” "the Mona Lisa of subway stations," someone once observed. They would really do the detailed design of these vaults, and the architects trusted them a€” because they were masters a€” to do what was best." Ochsendorf, who teaches architecture and engineering at MIT, says at the peak of its success, the Guastavino Co. He had the Guastavinos pile more than 500 pounds per square foot on top of their tiled arch to test its strength.
