Deep under old New York, lies abandoned platforms, train tracks and entire train stations. Some, maybe glimpsed by passengers on some lines, others lay hidden behind doors or flights of stairs. The most startling, is the terminal which rests beneath City Hall Park, an opulent and beautiful show-piece, but deserted and largely forgotten since the 1940s. NEW YORK CITY.
Central station, Antwerp, Belgium Antwerp’s ‘Railway Cathedral’ has its domed roof, iron and glass vaulted ceilings and lavishly decorated stone and marble interiors to thank for its landmark status – definitely fancier than your average interchange. Not only that but the station complex houses three levels of tracks, a shopping mall and a diamond gallery home to some 30 diamond shops.
