Here are the coolest and most usual things to do in New York City
City Hall Station
A superb subway station created in 1904 but is now abandoned. In the past, the train would leave from City Hall station and would reach Grand Central Station. That was when a subway ticket was only 5 cents. The architects Rafael Guastavino, George Lewis Heins and Christopher Grant LaFarge built City Hall Station. You may recognize the names because they also built St John The Devine.
How to see City Hall Station without joining a tour
1) The station is below Manhattan Municipal Building at the corner of Centre Street and Chambers Street. You must take line 6 Downtown direction.
2) Once you arrive at the last station Brooklyn Bridge – City Hall / Chambers Street, passengers must exit the train.
3) Stay inside the train and duck so no one sees you. Once the train leaves the station, it passes by City Hall station. That’s how you will be able to see it.
