About this Webinar:
We all know about the majestic City Hall Station, New York’s crown jewel subway station decommissioned 75 years ago and left abandoned for decades. But under our feet, there are dozens of abandoned or never-used subway stations and platforms that don’t get as much attention as City Hall. Take a journey underground with Chief Experience Officer, Justin Rivers, as he surveys some of the lesser-known but equally fascinating abandoned underground transit infrastructure. No flashlights or dark clothing required!
