    96th St was in service since 1904 and was part of the first subway. But with a 200 foot platform, the station was retired in 1959 for similar reasons as the abandoned Worth Street & 18th St stations. Read more

    This is the station where the Warriors are chased by the cops, and the Baseball Furies are waiting for them outside the station.

    Please try to have your metrocard ready (and not be checking in) when you reach the turnstiles. ;)

    Stay connected on your phone until the train arrives if you stay close to the central stairs.

    Ah, yes -- the weekend track work: No service north of this station (only some dubious shuttle bus options), so plan accordingly.

    The lobby of this station has an absurd number of surveillance cameras.

    At peak times avoid the eastside entrance/exit @ 96th. Construction has narrowed the passageway and it gets congested. Use westside to save time

    Entrances at W 96th and W 94th for service in both directions (I've seen way too many stressed out "tourists" trying to run to 96th)

    It now offers stairs direct to and from the street; no need to walk down and then up.
