Trésors cachés à Manhattan

Voici une liste de choses à faire hors de l’ordinaire à New York

City Hall Station

Une superbe station de métro créé en 1904 mais maintenant abandonné. Auparavant, le train partait de City Hall et se rendait  à Grand Central Terminal. Le prix du billet de métro coûtait seulement cinq sous. Les architectes Rafael Guastavino, George Lewis Heins et Christopher Grant LaFarge, ont construit la station. Ils sont aussi bâti pour St John The Devine.

Comment visiter City Hall Station gratuitement

1) La station se trouve sous Manhattan Municipal Building au coin de Centre Street et Chambers Street. Vous prenez la ligne 6 en direction Downtown.

2) Lorsque le train arrive à la dernière station Brooklyn Bridge – City Hall / Chambers Street, les passagers doivent quitter le train

3) Restez à l’intérieur du train et penchez-vous pour ne pas être vu. Lorsque le métro quitte la station, il passe par la station abandonnée de City Hall. C’est alors que vous pourrez l’observer.
