We went to old city hall station where New York City's underground railroad was officially opened on October 27th, 1904. Inside they have all these beautiful arches composed of cream tile with gloss green arches and brown trim edges. Three of the arches are set off by magnificent leaded glass skylights and twelve ornate brass electric chandeliers hung from the center of the vaults to light the platform along the track. The City Hall station was closed to the public on December 31st, 1945, and the chandeliers were were never turned off ever since. It's truly amazing and feels like a movie set.
We are the member of the New York Transit Museum so lucky for us, we got the chance to see this underground secret. You normally can't go to the City Hall station, they rarely schedule for this kind of tour. We've been waiting for a long time to do this and we were happy we finally get to see and experience it.
