7. Deepest Subway Station: 191st Street, Washington Heights

191st Subway Station

In Washington Heights, the 191st Street stop along the 1 line is considered the deepest at 180 feet below street level, according to the MTA. This is one of the stations that still have full-time elevator operators since the elevators serve as the main access to the platform. These elevators also have a greater tendency to break down, says The New York Times (yikes). See more on the deepest and highest subway stations in New York City.
