Reader Alan L. writes:

Regarding the Delancy Street Station of the IND, I recall stairways leading up to wherever at the south end of the platform. These stairways were always blocked, and there were a few of them. They were NOT the stairways to the BMT Jamaica line. Now, these stairways are gone, and there is no evidence that they were there or what they went to. I suspected that they were part of the IND second system which was never built, but I can find no literature that indicates that they might have been there.

If anyone has any information, please send it along!
