There are many places in the subway where ticket booths once stood, and you can see the remnants of some. One station where you can see remnants of a lost booth is the Times Square/42nd Street subway station., another station that opened in 1904. You can also see a secret door to the Knickerbocker Hotel, original railings, remnants of the first ticket booth and turnstiles, and exposed infrastructure from the original tracks.
