I was under the impression (mistaken?) That the City Hall station exists but is closed off. With all of the Subway exploration that has happened in the past decade, has anyone gotten access to see it? Thanks.

I thought they filled in the subway under Broad Street.

I thought so too but I don't know the orientation of the tunnel itself and what is under City Hall at was an entrance/waiting area/etc. I always heard rumors the station still existed. That could be wrong.

I heard something along those lines but pertaining to NY City. Supposedly there is a very ornate and beautiful stop which is never used. This is just a recollection, not hard fact, but I have not heard anything like that about Rochester.

It was on my existing stations site as it was the last station on the old subway that was still there, just sealed off in the basement of City Hall.

JPVideos and The Wandering Woodsman toured the tunnel last year, and showed what was left of the City Hall and Times Square stations. They didn't know that's what they were looking at, but it was the most detailed look I've seen on Youtube.
