I was actually just at a Metro training facility today practicing for fires or special rescues with the Metro.
And though it isn't a rail line, it should be noted that Staten Island does have a public transit ferry operated by the same agency running to and from Manhattan. 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.
Today the New York City Subway system celebrates 107 years of operation and continues to be one of the busiest mass transit systems in the world with 486 stations in operation. 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. As the city grew, so did the Subway system, and in the process of keeping pace, some stations had to be completely abandoned. 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. 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.
