    There was also a Rockaway Beach service that originated from Chamber Street from 1913 to 1917, operated by the Long Island Rail Road and Brooklyn Rapid Transit. Read more

    On weekends, the J service terminates here, and no trains continue south to Broad St. For service to Broad St, take the 4/5 to Wall St.

    Stay on the downtown 6 when it switches to uptown to see the old IRT station. Sorta cheesy but it feels like a theme park ride and it's really beautiful.

    No lighting up top on arrival.

    Stay on the 6 at the end station and see the old City Hall station (which is closed) when the train turns around!

    City Hall Station closed in 1945 but remains a NYC secret. Stay on the dowtown 6 at the Brooklyn Bridge City Hall stop, and your heart will pound as you loop around to the other side of the tracks.

    When traveling from union square to Brooklyn bridge the 4-5 are faster than the 6. Don't be fooled by the luxury of a seat on the 6 it will take 2x as long, if you're in a rush.

    Stay on the downtown 6 train after Brooklyn Bridge to see the beautiful (and abandoned) City Hall station as the train turns around to go uptown again. The incredible skylights are worth it alone.

    City Hall R train will also be closed. Limited Services will be running on the other lines.

    Another badly kept NYC secret - stay on the 6 train as it turns around and you’ll be able to sneak a peak at the oldest subway station in NYC. Or exit the station and walk the Bridge.

    See the old City Hall stop, one of NYC’s most majestic stations with vaulted ceilings and Art Nouveau skylights. Stay on the downtown 6 as it passes through the station on its way to the uptown track. Read more

    The Chambers Street J/Z platform under the municipal building is historic in that it once stood as the BMTs south terminal. LIRR excursion trains also departed from this station via the Broadway BMT.

    stay on the downtown #6 after the last stop (Brooklyn Bridge/CityHall). Look west out the windows to see an old station that has been closed many years. the secret City Hall stop.

    This is a great subway station to transfer at. Just saying

    AT&T cellular reception may be found near the Municipal Building/Court House/Brooklyn Bridge exit, near the 4/5/6 platform.

    Instead of getting off the downtown 6 train at this station, stay on and see the oldest subway station in NYC, opened at City Hall in 1904 Read more

    Stay on the southbound 6 as it loops around to the northbound platform and catch a glimpse of the City Hall platform that's no longer in use.
