Visitors to City Hall Station look around as a 6 train passes. Photo by Chris Funfgeld.

With exclusive access through the New York Transit Museum, explore the elegant chandeliers, leaded skylights, vaulted tile ceiling, and graceful curves of this decommissioned subway station. The tour begins above ground, where you will learn the fascinating history of the Beach Pneumatic Tube and the development of City Hall. Then, head downstairs and be transported back to 1904, a time when the Subway’s opening and the completion of this station marked a moment of great civic pride.
