Been a long time...

Welcome to nycsubway.org - born in 1995, one of the largest New York City Subway history and fan sites on the web.

Regular visitors have probably noticed that there haven't been many updates over the past few years. Our pages about subway stations, rolling stock, and, especially, the pages about transit systems around the world, have become somewhat stale. Free (and paid) photo hosting, social media, and (especially) Wikipedia have outstripped one webmaster's ability to keep up.

The redesigned main page has links that will help you navigate nycsubway.org's content and highlight its strengths vs. what you can now find on social media sites and Wikipedia. Some other recent updates:

  • Lots of new images from the 1960s and the 1980s
  • Subway Art Guide revamped; now sortable by station, line, and year of installation; missing entries added (but some still need photos)
  • Wind-down of the "virtual host" bus.nycsubway.org (bus content and caption database integrated with main site - see Bus Transportation)
  • All content now being served SSL/https (this is why it looks like all the pages were recently updated)
  • Various script/code and cosmetic fixes
  • New slideshow of some of the new 1960s-era images I've been getting off Ebay: click here for the slideshow.

Second Avenue Subway Phase I Opens

The first phase of the Second Avenue Subway finally opened on 1/1/2017. After some previews for press and invited guests, including a New Year's Eve party, the first three stations, at 96th Street, 86th Street, and 72nd Street opened for service at 12:00 noon on New Year's Day. Lots of press coverage is available online; the New York Times covered the opening and the first business day's operations. Thanks to Aahd Tahar for updating our route map.
