1-Lost Subway Maps of New York - Untapped Cities-001

Going back into the archives, WNYC has a great interactive “Lost Subways” map that showcases the abandoned or never-completed subway stations of New York City, as well as never built lines. It’s a great tool to go along with our popular article on 7 of NYC’s abandoned subway stations. Here’s a quick rundown:

Manhattan’s Abandoned Subway Stations

1. City Hall Station

Abandoned-City Hall Subway Station-MTA-Transit Museum-NYC

This decommissioned subway station was the real jewel of the IRT subway line when it opened, with Guastavino tiling and a curved track. With a platform too short for the new trains, it has been closed since 1945 but is open for tours through the New York Transit Museum.

    The map doesn’t include any extensions east of Flushing-Main Street for the 7 train, or the E/F east of Jamaica-179th Street, or the E/J/Z southeast to Rosedale.

  2. I Alam says:

    #4 it the lower level of port authority was made to prevent any extension of the IRT 7 train due to the fact they were competing companies at the time.

  3. Ryan says:

    There’s no 7 train at 63 Dr-Rego Park, as indicated in the Cross-Forest Hills Connector section. The E/F don’t stop there either under normal daytime operations.
