Urban Exploring at 174th 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 174th street subway yard.

The 174th street subway yard is a cavernous space under Washington Heights that is currently used to store C trains.

It has been long said that this yard was actually built as a provisions for a subway route that was suppose to go over the George Washington Bridge.
