The New and Old South Ferry – Unofficial Tour

December 12th, 2008 by

The NYC MTA is opening a new subway station at South Ferry. This new station, funded by the feds after 9/11, is meant to replace the old 1905 South Ferry loop station on the 1 & 9 line. What's most interesting about this station is that they've tied it to the nearby R/W whitehall street station, as well as connected it to the old loop stations via doorways and utility rooms which the public will likely never get to see (and yes, that is loop stations in the plurial - the inner track on the south ferry loop, used to turn #5 trains during non-rush hours, also has a station located behind it's wall. This station was abandoned in the 1970s.).

Long before the MTA gave it's press tour, we helped ourselves to a peak behind the curtain of this new station, which is set to open sometime in the next month or two.
