10. City Hall


Of course, we didn’t forget the decommissioned City Hall station in Downtown Manhattan. For more photos of the incredible tile work by Guastavino at this hidden gem, see our Touring the Old City Hall Station.

Artist Adam Chang took it upon himself to digitally illustrate every ceramic design at all 118 subway stops in Manhattan. He also includes a fun fact about each sign/station. His virtual tour project is called NY Train Project, which he plans to extend to the outer boroughs in the near future. For more on Adam Chang’s work, see Beautiful Graphics of NY Train Project Celebrates NYC Subway Tile Mosaics. We’re also hosting our first NYC Subway Art walking tour this weekend.
