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 Berkshire Regional Planning Commission, the recipient of the funding, will conduct the study beginning early next year, said Nat Karns, the commission's executive director. Before the project can move forward, Karns said, essential discussions need to take place regarding specifics of train station locations and what infrastructure is needed for such facilities. An economic study released a year ago, commissioned by the Housatonic Railroad and conducted by Williams College economist Stephen Sheppard, concluded that passenger rail service to and from New York City could increase economic output by $344 million in the Berkshires during its first 10 years of construction and service.
Karns said if the planning process goes well, passenger rail to New York could be a reality within five to eight years.


Such rail service is expected to be patronized by quite a few tourists, employees of Berkshire companies doing business in New York and Connecticut, second-homeowners traveling to and from their Berkshire homes, and service industry employees commuting between Pittsfield and Great Barrington. Karns said part of the study will be conducted through meetings with town boards and commissions concerning zoning, planning and other development aspects for station locations.
Each community will have to work with regional planners to figure out where they want the stations located, and the feasibility of those locations.
Karns noted that these stations are likely to attract regional users, not just folks within the station's community. Stockbridge Town Admin istrator Jorja Ann Marsden said a passenger train station in Stockbridge would generate more retail and commercial interest in town. In Pittsfield, the intermodal transportation facility would be analyzed to determine how it could be enhanced to handle the increased passenger line traffic.

The transportation hub connects subway and train systems with the surrounding towers above grade level. Commuters enter a PATH train station at the World Trade Center site on August 16, 2011 in New York City. 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.
A retail space surrounds a main plaza which connects a train mezzanine with the subway terminals and pedestrian corridors to the surrounding towers. 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.
Department of Transportation announced it has granted $240,000 for a "comprehensive planning study" of six possible train station locations between Sheffield and Pittsfield. John Olver, Sheppard said, and it would need similar support by his successor if it is to become a reality. 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.
