Impossible Subway Tour

There’s a forgotten world that lies beyond the tourist maps and double-decker bus tours of New York City. For the latest issue of A Public Space, John Wray and Matt Dojny take readers on an illustrated tour of impossible sites that aren’t endorsed by the New Your City Department of Tourism. The Interbourogh Rapid Transit Company’s abandoned City Hall Station (above) can be found by riding the subway one stop past the end of the 6 line. While location of the Home of Tomorrow, built 15 feet underground for the 1964-65 World’s Fair, remains a mystery.
