9th Ave Lower

January 30th, 2012 by

9th Ave's Lower Level is a location festering with filth and decay. Situated at the edge of the MTA's largest staging yards for work trains, this station has been abandoned for almost as many years as I've been alive. It last saw use as the terminal for the old culver shuttle, though it also hosted freight trains - making it significantly more rarified than your average abandoned NYC subway station.



Today it sits as it has since being closed: dark, dirty, and worm out from lack of care. Work trains pass through and lay up at this station all the time, though no one has stopped to maintain it in years.
