City Hall Subway Station NYC: Forgotten Treasure
The closed City Hall Station located on the 6 train loop is one of the city’s hidden treasures. Preserved stunning architecture sits underneath the east side of Manhattan, and can still be seen by in the know subway riders from a comfortable seat on the 6 train.
The station opened on October 27th, 1904 and was closed on December 31, 1945. Now replaced by the Brooklyn Bridge Station. The station was closed because it is located on a very tight curve that couldn’t accommodate the lengthened trains and the nearby Brooklyn Bridge station served both local and express trains.
