Comprehensive Tour of Manhattan's 190th Street Subway Station, Built Into a Hudson Heights Hill

Local transit historian and railfan Dj Hammers makes tons of great videos showing how subway transit works and runs in New York City.

For this recent YouTube video, he gives a comprehensive tour of the 190th Street A Train subway station built into a hillside in Hudson Heights.

The station is close to Fort Tryon Park and the Mother Cabrini Shrine in the Hudson Heights neighborhood of Washington Heights. The Cloisters medieval art museum, a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is located in the park, about a 10-minute walk north from the station’s Fort Washington Avenue exit. An additional exit through the side of the hill leads to Bennett Avenue and provides access to the Broadway Valley area of Washington Heights.
