"Brooklyn Bridge stop...beautifully preserved City Hall station from 1904. The city closed the station in 1945...In 1995 the city vowed to restore the site and turn it into a part of the transit museum, but those plans were scrapped...now passengers are allowed to stay on. So the next time you reach the end of the line, keep going. And check out these amazing photos courtesy of John-Paul Palescandolo and Eric Kazmirek" ~ New York

The Royal Mail’s underground ‘mini’ railway was used to take letters (and possibly workers) along the tracks to different station/sorting offices stretching from Paddington to Whitechapel. In 2002, it had become an uneconomical service, losing an estimated 1.2M a day, and quietly shut down.
