7. Bowery Subway Station

abandoned subway station

The abandoned portion of the Bowery Station on the J/Z line has made the news for a variety of special projects. In 2015, graffiti artist VEW made headlines for his Star Wars-themed anti-ISIS mural painted on the wall of the abandoned station. That same year, the NYPD used the abandoned space for a counter-terrorism training drill.

The Bowery subway station is often used in movies and television series as a filming location. You can spot it in USA’s series Mr. Robot and the Amazon Prime show Hunters with Al Pacino. In 2019, Tom Ford unveiled his 2020 collection in the graffiti and grime-filled space.
