The escalator going up to the exit is really cool. One of the steepest I've been on.

What exactly is going on there?

There is no description and it barely has anything to do with the subway. The only evidence of the subway is a single entrance barely visible in the lower right.

Yes, customers of Nassau Street Line are privileged to have their subway terminating right under NYSE.

Okay...

So that's the whole message here? That the Nassau Street Loop has a stop directly under the NYSE?

A picture that more clearly shows the entrance and its relationships would be better, as would a caption.

Hey the oversized flag might be a little gaudy, but Wall Street remains perhaps the best and the oldest urban canyon in the city or anywhere. Looking down and seeing Trinity Church. I like how unimposing but important the subway is here. The veins of the city tucked down out of the way. Elevated transit was never right for Manhattan.

Maybe not.. but the El provided public transit on Manhattan from 1878 to 1955 when the third AV El was closed in Manhattan;

The Manhattan Elevated served New York City during its golden age.

It's dirty as hell, sure, but it was not built to be pretty. It was built to move people. And it does that quite well.

Also, you will notice that most subway stations have either a green globe or a red globe (image to left). Historically, these were installed to tell riders which stations are not open 24hours (those are marked with a red globe) and which stations are open 24 hours (those marked with a green globe). The red globes were also supposed to mark exit only stairs, but 99% of New Yorkers and visitors ignore that. To simplify things, just remember that red globe station entrances are not likely open after evening rush hour.

What’s Next for the New York Subway? Toronto Already Knows

TORONTO — Step on board, and the subway car immediately feels different.
With a clear view down the length of the train, commuters walk from car to car searching for a less crowded spot to stand. Others gather in the accordion-style passageway between cars, an area once separated by doors[...]

Transit Wireless Accelerates WiFi Deployment in NYC Subway

Interesting news for NYC subway riders. Transit Wireless is now planning to have WiFi available across 279 underground stations in the Big Apple by the end of 2016 but cellular service could take a while longer[...]

HI RES
What's interesting to me is how little East-West service there was (as in none) ...which makes sense, as Manhattan is much longer North-South than it is East-West. I'm guessing streetcars filled in the gaps there.

Most areas of Manhattan have better rail service today, though the Lower East Side, the West Village, and modern Tribeca arguably had it slightly better in the Elevated Era.
