The abandoned 91st St. station

I’m often intrigued by forgotten, decaying places AND I take the 1 train all the time, so I was a little surprised that I never noticed the abandoned station at 91st Street until just recently when I overheard another subway passenger point it out to his friends. It’s located, as you can probably imagine, between the 89th Street and 96th Street stations on the 1, and on sunny days when the train is moving slowly, you can pick out the graffiti-covered walls of the abandoned subway stop, now closed for more than 40 years. [More at NYCSubway.org and Abandoned Stations.] Since first spotting it, I’ve been trying also to locate any above-ground remnants of the station’s entrances, but I haven’t had any luck yet.
