While the majority of New York City’s subway entrances have the same mundane look, there are others that still have details from an earlier era. Some entrances contain flourishes from the buildings in which they are situated, others stand alone. Today, we’ve rounded up some unique subway entrances in New York City.
This entrance part of 195 Broadway, the prior headquarters of American Telephone and Telegraph and Western Union. The building has the claim to fame of being on the receiving end of the first transatlantic phone call. It’s now home to Thompson Reuters and other tenants. Architect William W. Bosworth, who also designed Kykuit, the Gilded Age Rockefeller estate, designed this portion of the building on the Fulton Street side. The station itself, which includes this entrance, is a registered New York City landmark.
