On the East Side IRT? Yes.theseaandalifesaver wrote:Is that an abandoned section of platform I see at the southern end of the Brooklyn bridge station?
When they lengthened the platforms, they closed down the Worth Street station (north of Brooklyn Bridge), and lengthened the platforms northward at Brooklyn Bridge.
So the current station serves for both, but mostly incorporates the original Brooklyn Bridge station.
I haven't been there for a while. Is the remnant of a gap filler still visible?
Nonsense is nonsense, but the history of nonsense is a very important science.

Worth Street was closed in September 1962. A similar case occured at Union Square and 96 Street (IRT West Side) as the 18 Street and 91 Street stations respectively closed as the nearby express stations were lengthened.
