Sayonara, South Ferry

The South Ferry subway platform at Manhattan's southern tip is about to be retired for a glitzy new station, so Forgotten NY takes one last look at the tiny South Ferry of old. Info alert: "While not one of the Original 28 NYC subway stations (from City Hall to 145th Street) that opened in 1904, South Ferry opened the very next year and boasts architectural and design elements that closely match the ones in those stations, decor by the architects George L. Heins and Christopher G. LaFarge, who also designed the Cathedral of St. John the Devine and the original buildings in the Bronx Zoo." [Forgotten NY]
