In a subterranean episode of the Fast Company series You Have to See This, host Mark Wilson rides the the number 6 subway line several times to catch a glimpse of the little known, defunct City Hall Loop station.
The station was the very first subway station in NYC, opening in 1904 and closing in 1945.
For many decades it wasn’t possible to visit the abandoned station, which remained pristine and stunning over the years despite its disuse.
The station is at the end of the 6 train line which terminates at the “Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall Station” in Lower Manhattan. It is located beneath the magnificent Municipal Building at the intersection of Centre Street and Chambers Street.
