With exclusive access through the Transit Museum, explore this decommissioned subway station and its elegant chandeliers, leaded skylights, vaulted tile ceiling, and graceful curves. Begin above ground and learn the fascinating history of the Beach Pneumatic Tube and the development of City Hall, then head downstairs and feel transported back to 1904, a time when the Subway’s opening and the completion of this station marked a moment of great civic pride.
