Exploring the Abandoned Worth Street Subway Station (2005)

Published on: August 17th, 2005 | Last updated: December 1, 2015 Written by:

Worth street station on the IRT line is a strange breed among abandoned subway stations.




Built as the 3rd station north along the original NYC IRT subway line, this awkwardly placed station was lengthened on the downtown side to accommodate a full 10 car train (a feature noticeably lacking in other abandoned IRT stations). Just a few years after it was lengthened though work was begun on lengthening the next station south – Brooklyn Bridge. This station was lengthened northward so as the southern end of the station, which was built on a curve with gap fillers, could be abandoned. Once the full sized Brooklyn Bridge station opened in the early 1960s, Worth Street station became, well, Worthless… …at least to commuters.




Today Worth Street still lingers in the dust and dirt. The walls have been coated with graffiti, some relatively historic, some maybe not so much…



As with any tunnel, you’ve got to be careful what shady characters you might find stumbling around… 🙂
