NYC IS THE SHIZ

New York City speaks for itself.

The city hall subway station 1904 was designed by rafael guastavino and built by heins and lafarge.  It was an elegant masterpiece with vaulted tiled ceilings of which guastavino was known for along with stained glass paneling.  The Station closed in 1945.  A New York architectural marvel now a mere ghost of glamour. You can still see the grandeur of mr guastavino’s work as it is in evidence at grand central station as well as the iconic oyster bar on the lower level.  Also marvel at the (believe it or not) Food Emporium flagship store at 405 East 59th street under the 59th street bridge, as it boasts an amazing guastavino ceiling

My. Life. Is. Complete.

This is the abandoned City Hall train station on the 4/5/6 line. You can pass through the station if you stay on the downtown 6 at Brooklyn Bridge when they tell you to get off.

Yours truly just got to visit the damn station, and here are the photos I took. I think this has been the best day of my life so far.
