Notes: Wow is this ever one long station: 8 blocks in 10 feet! This station was once used fairly heavily for movie shoots, and to make it seem like "different" stations (depending on the placement of the camera inside the car) different station indicators were applied to the sides of the platform. The movie or TV show for which these modifications were made is unknown. Note, also, that these numbers are in reverse order: "50th St" here would be South of "47th St," which in turn would be South of 42nd Street!

Notes: Looking North, about 200' from the North end of the platform. There is ample evidence that this station is used by New York's homeless, although the "aroma" is far less noxious than in many other public areas of the system! There is also a fairly healthy rodent population on this platform as well. In the foreground is the second of the two remaining fare control gates from the days of the Aqueduct Special.

Notes: Looking Southbound along this long-disused platform. The Southbound 8the Ave. local track is immediately above this special track, designated D3 - the same designation as the Southbound E tracks from 53rd St. The Southbound E once stopped at this platform before rising and continuing it's Southward journey, either on track A1 or A3, depending if it was in local or express service. Today the E uses a crossover just North of the station to switch to the 8th Ave local tracks.
