Here's the dilapidated Bowery track and platform to the right.
This underground MTA train station is located at the intersection of Bowery and Delancy Street in the Lower East Side of NYC. Construction began in 1907 and wrapped up by the end of 1910, but the station didn’t open till the summer of 1913!
The Bowery MTA train stop is the third least-used station in Manhattan. The usage is so little that the original metal treads are still on the stairs.
The Bowery station is well known for being decrepit to local urban explorers; at least the original northbound platform. That's the shitty side, which you can catch glimpse of through the boarded up plywood separating the north and southbound platforms. The station also double as a training facility for NYPD for counter-terrorism. I was able to snap a few pics of what it actually looks like from the other side. I also was able to get a sneak peak of the abandoned Canal platform as well. For that we had to walk about 1/2 mile or less to the next train station platform. Nowadays there is a security camera watching the canal station. Transit workers use that stations for storage or something. We didn't stick around for too long, we wanted to just photograph the place and leave without cops or MTA employees busting us.
