What is your favorite IRT station?

Recommended Posts

I was hoping if the good members of this forum would like to share their opinion on their favorite IRT stations.

Ahem... City Hall. Then South Ferry, Worth St, Brooklyn Bridge, Canal St, Grand Central, Times Square, and 59th St :D.

 

... I love my loops...

In no particular order:

1. 14 Street- Union Square: I like how its so unique: offset platforms, a huge curve, gap fillers, abandoned side platforms.

2. 125 Street- Broadway: I like how the tracks are almost level, but the land goes down in a valley.

3. 168 Street- I like the unique design

4. 181 Street- same as 168

5. Dyckman Street- even though I have never waited for an uptown 1 there, I'm pretty sure that you can see all the way down to 157 or 168 Street!. Also I like how most of the station is on an embankment while the extreme north end is elevated

6. 145 Street and Broadway- I like the yard at the south end of the station, and the northbound track merging with the middle track at the north end of the station.

7. 96 Street and Broadway- very unique, I like the abandoned side platforms and the light going through the grates

8. 116 Street and Broadway- I like the way the light shines through the grates in the summertime and the 3 track bored tunnel at the north end of the station

9. East Tremont Avenue- excellent view and you can even see the 6 train from there as well as Simpson Street too

10. South Ferry/ City Hall- loop stations are rare

11. 72 Street- like the unique station house

12. 42 Street- Times Square (Shuttle)- like how there is still proof of it being a local station and the track connection with the West side line

13. Chambers Street- like the split level at the south end of the station

14 Borough Hall (East Side)- like the appearance

15. 174 Street- I like the curve of the station

 

Note that the majority are contract 1 IRT stations (all built by 1910)

Cool, good selections. I going to have to pick Grand Army Plaza. I really dunno to why I like it, I just like how it is just a simple station. Besides it serves the 2,3, and during late nites the 4 train.:D

My all-time favorite has to be Simpson Street on the (2)(5), merely because it's my home station.

 

Other personal favorites are Prospect Avenue (2)(5), 161st/Yankee Stadium (B)(D)(4), 167th Street (4), 180th Street (2)(5), 233rd Street (2), Whitlock Ave (6) and Parkchester (6).

Well, I remember that it was the first stop on the 2 in Brooklyn after leaving Manhattan, but that was 2 years ago so I don't really know if it's dark or not.

My favorite station is Bowling Green (4)(5) Lines. I don't know why something about that station I used it all the time when I was a Kid living in SI.

Oh, and I'm gonna say Cortlandt Street on the (1) since I miss that station. I used it everytime I went into the subway from the PATH WTC stop when I didn't take the (E) or the (4).

I go to and come from the Court Street Borough Hall IRT Station. The (4) and (5) got the best stations in Brooklyn. Honestly, has anyone seen the Atlantic Avenue station lately? It looks delightful.

City Hall by far; it's one of my favourites in the entire world (there are a few on the London Underground that are just astounding).
