Urban Exploring at 137th Street Subway Yard

The LTV Squad could possibly be one of the City's first modern-day urban explorers. For the past several decades, they have been sneaking into abandoned areas all around the City, then sharing photos of their explorations.

For a recent article, LTV Squad member Control posted tons of great shots from within the 137th street subway yard.

The 137th street subway yard is one of the few subway yards built in NYC that is entirely underground. Located along the 1 line between 137th street and 145th street stations, this yard consists of 5 tracks bracketing the ‘main line’ center 3 tracks where regularly scheduled subways run. 2 of the yard tracks are located east of the ‘main line’ tracks, while the other 3 are on the west wall. Each track can hold 2 10-car subway trains, for a total capacity of 10 trains.
