Rabbit hole: subway mysteries of New York

The other day I was looking something up on Wikipedia. And then I followed a link. And followed a link. And so on. You know how it goes.

This trip ended up in a completely different world: hidden subway stations in New York City. I had no idea. I wasn't looking for it. But after I learned about one—the never used lower Nevins Street station—I was hooked.

I'm just going to offer some links I found, sans context, and let you trip down the rabbit hole yourself. Enjoy.

Here's how I got there:
