Ghost stations is the usual English translation for the German word Geisterbahnhöfe. This term was used to describe certain stations on Berlin’s U-Bahn and S-Bahn metro networks that were closed during the period of Berlin’s division during the Cold War. Since then, the term has come to be used to describe any disused station on an underground railway line, especially those actively passed through by passenger trains.

The New York City Subway is a rapid transit system that serves four of the five boroughs of New York City in the U.S. state of New York: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens. Its predecessors—the Interborough Rapid Transit Company (IRT), the Brooklyn–Manhattan Transit Corporation (BMT), and the Independent Subway System (IND)—were consolidated in 1940. Since then, stations of the New York City Subway have been permanently closed, either entirely or in part.

The largest number of closed New York City Subway stations consist of stations on abandoned and demolished elevated lines once operated by the IRT and the BMT, both of which were privately held companies. After their takeover by the City of New York (the IND was already owned and operated by New York City), the three former systems were no longer in competition with each other. Thus, elevated lines that duplicated underground lines were the first to close. Other elevated lines that did not create a redundancy in the system, such as the Bronx portion of the IRT Third Avenue Line and a major portion of the BMT Myrtle Avenue Line were later demolished. Two stations in which sections of track still operate have been demolished. The Dean Street station was demolished as part of the rebuilding of the BMT Franklin Avenue Line, and the Cortlandt Street station of the IRT Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line was demolished after it sustained heavy damage caused by the September 11, 2001 attacks.

The remaining closed stations and portions of stations are intact and are abandoned. The exception is the Court Street station: it is the site of the New York Transit Museum, a museum that documents the history of public transportation in New York City. One of these abandoned stations, the outer platforms of the Hoyt–Schermerhorn Streets station, is occasionally used for filming purposes. The criterion for closing stations, as explained by spokesman Charles Seaton, is: “We do not shut stations down because of low ridership. The only reason we have closed a station is because of its proximity to another station… The smaller stations are just as necessary as the larger ones.”

Between 23rd Street and 14th Street – Union Square. Closed after platform lengthening of both adjacent stations and the opening of new entrances at 22nd Street and 15th Street deemed the 18th Street station to be within proximity. Between 96th Street and 86th Street. Closed after platform lengthening of the 96th Street platforms deemed the station to be within proximity. North of the 155th Street station, the elevated line crossed the Harlem River and went into a tunnel similarly to how the 125th Street subway station comes out of the tunnel onto a high viaduct. This was done in both places to keep the grade of the tracks relatively level. Closed with the discontinuation of the Polo Grounds Shuttle. South of Brooklyn Bridge – City Hall on a curved balloon loop. Closed due to low ridership, short platform length and the proximity of the busier Brooklyn Bridge – City Hall station. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places. West of Hoyt–Schermerhorn Streets. Closed due to low ridership and proximity to other Downtown Brooklyn stations. Site now houses the New York Transit Museum. Between the Manhattan Bridge and DeKalb Avenue. Closed due to proximity to DeKalb Avenue and construction of a flying junction to ease a choke point in the area. The southbound platform no longer exists; the northbound platform now houses the Masstransiscope zoetrope artwork by Bill Brand visible from Manhattan-bound trains coming from the local track at DeKalb Avenue. North of the 155th Street station, the elevated line crossed the Harlem River and went into a tunnel similarly to how the 125th Street subway station comes out of the tunnel onto a high viaduct. This was done in both places to keep the grade of the tracks relatively level. Closed with the discontinuation of the Polo Grounds Shuttle.

New York City Subway: Touring The Fulton Street Transit Center

Metropolitan Transportation Authority [New York City Subway – IRT 7th / Lexington Avenues, IND 8th Avenue & BMT Nassau Street Lines]

Here is a long tour clip of the Fulton Street Station (also known as the Fulton Street Transit Center) This station is served by the (A), (J) (2) & (4) Trains at all times, (C) (3) & (5) Trains at all times except late nights and the (Z) Train during rush hours only. The new entrance, which you see in the beginning, was recently opened on November 10, 2014 to allow easier transfers between trains at Fulton Street and easier connections to other stations within the area and access to the World Trade Center site. There is an out-of-system transfer to the (R) under Dey Street. This station, out of 421, is ranked as the 12th busiest station in the subway system.

(Note)
– I had a blooper moment near the turnstiles. Pulled out the wrong Metrocard (lol).
– Some dude thought it was funny to stick his hand out when I was going downstairs to go to the Downtown side on the (4) & (5).
