Turns out that Borough Park's 9th Avenue subway station is known for more than just the place where crazy kids fling themselves across the tracks. As Second Avenue Sagas points out, it's also home to one of the city's many ghost subway stations. Located beneath the current 9th Avenue platform sits a lower level that was once used for the Culver Shuttle. For 40 years, the platform has sat empty, but back in the day, it was a stop along the two-car shuttle's four-stop route. The shuttle connected summering New Yorkers to the now F line to whisk them away to the seaside resorts in Coney Island.
