1. Bleecker Street Subway Platform
In 2012, renovations at the Bleecker Street subway stations- necessary to allow for transfers to the uptown 6, as it was previously only available for downtown 6 transfers- necessitated a southward shift in the subway platform as well as an extension northward.
You can still see the old, unused platform when departing on the 6 train, and some old advertisements from the year it was abandoned may still be visible. The 2012 renovation walled off the platform, and the mid-century green tiling along the platform has now mostly been covered over with graffiti. You can still see the platform if you look very carefully! The next time you find yourself rolling through north to Astor Place or south to Spring Street, be sure to keep an eye out for this abandoned station.
