[WATCH] Exploring the Myth of 76th Street Station in the NYC Subway

Urban legend has it that under the intersection of 76th street and Pitkin Avenue, just a few blocks away from Grant Avenue station and just east of Euclid Avenue station, there is an abandoned, unfinished station. The station supposedly was part of a plan to extend the IND Fulton Line to 229th street, in Cambria Heights. The myth has been kept alive by small pieces of evidence and what was supposedly an April Fool’s Day joke post detailing the history of the rumored station. So is there anything to this urban legend? Does 76th street station exist? I decided to travel to the supposed location of the station to find out more.
