City Hall was the ceremonial terminal of the first subway project in New York, according to Columbia University. Tt has a sharply curved platform, a Guastavino tile arched ceiling, skylights (blackened in World War II), and plaques praising the work and those involved. It was in service from 1904 until 1945. Not everyone can see the station – you have to pass a background check first.
