Bonus: Smallest Subway Door: Columbus Circle

A tiny subway door at Columbus Circle

We saved the cutest of the superlatives for last! This adorable door at the 60th Street and Broadway subway entrance to Columbus Circle has been making us smile for a while now. Could it be the smallest door in the NYC subway system? On top of the door is a phone number, which leads to the Rail Control Center offering no further clues. When you start to notice them, there are so many interesting doors and doorways in the subway system, some don’t even lead to anywhere.

What superlatives do you think we should add? Let us know social media @UntappedNY!
