New York City Subway: IRT Lexington Avenue Line at 14th Street–Union Square

YouTube

Today we take a look at the next express station along the IRT Lexington Avenue Line, which is 14th Street–Union Square. This station lies below the Union Square Park and originally opened in 1904 as part of the first IRT subway line. It is an express station and is served by (4), (5) and (6) trains. The BMT Canarsie and Broadway Lines also have a station here, but they are not shown in this film. We first take a look above ground at the beautiful neighborhood and park. We then move underground. The station has a few interesting aspects. It lies in a pretty tight curve and its downtown and uptown platforms are shifted significantly. Also because of the curve, the downtown platform is equipped with moving platforms that extend to the subway car in order to bridge the gap between the train and the platform edge. Finally, the station's mezzanine is located over the platform from which one can observe the platforms and trains. If you are a fan of the station announcements at the IRT lines, you will enjoy this film, as there are a lot of them! Enjoy! Filmed on 8 March 2015.
