The #7 at GCT and the E at 53rd & Lex are pretty deep... I've never used it, but I've heard that the F on Roosevelt Island is pretty deep.

Grand Central (7) is 80-100' deep. With the round platform ceiling, deep level construction and long escalators, it could pass for a London Tube station!

the issues is that the Washington heights tunnel may be deep, but it depth is mesured from the surface. Roosevelt island is 100 feet down from a surface that's basicly sea level, where as 168, 181 and 191 lose points becuase their "surface" is much higher.

I don't know how deep the Lexington Avenue Station on 63rd Street is - but it seem to be quite deep with the platforms being 12 and 13 stories down.
