City Hall station, New York City
Designed as a showpiece for New York’s new subway system, City Hall
station (towards the southern tip of Manhattan) opened in 1904. It’s an
elegant structure in Romanesque revival style with skylights, coloured
glass and brass chandeliers, but because of its tightly curved platform
longer subway carriages were unable to stop there. It was always a quiet
station, and passenger services were discontinued in 1945.
